Scan Halting, in XP SP3

Recommended Posts

I've reported this problem back when we were all using the Ad-Aware 2008 beta version, but unfortunately (and after all this time) it isn't fixed *yet*.

 

Unlike what happened with the previous version of this same software (i.e. 2007 one), I can't complete any kind of normal scan.

 

Either if I go for a SMART SCAN or for a FULL SCAN, the scanner is bound to, eventually, stop. It's not the usual "don't worry, it'll eventually end, just wait" thing, I've waited as far as 8 hours (in a 50GB disk, with 15 GB free), and it continues stuck in some file, not moving at all. (I haven't tried doing CUSTOM SCANs, by the way)

 

Last time I checked (as in, I cancelled it 5 minutes ago), it became stuck in a 93,0 KB file, for around 1h45min, until a cancelled it. As far as I've noticed, the file that makes it hang is not always the same, but I would like to know if this information is really relevant, before conducting further testing.

 

Can anyone please help me with this?

Silly forum, you never warned me about that reply. :)

 

Anyway, I was using 'Pro', the same key I was given after the 08 Beta. However, by now this problem is fixed, no idea how; probably, one of the updates fixed it.
