Ad Aware Malfunction?

Recommended Posts

The last time I ran Ad-Aware successfully was on September 16th. This week as I have tried to scan, Ad Aware has not detected anything (except 1 infection). That can't be true....there are always infections.... Normally there are at least 200 or more.

I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if I should delete Ad-Aware and reinstall? Any other suggestions?

Make sure that you have the latest version of the definition files (version 0124.0000 as of 2008/09/26) and that you have enabled the following options in your scanning tab under the settings menu:

  • Scan Tracking Cookies
  • Scan for MRUs
  • Deep Archive Scanning

That assumes this person is using 2008 and not SE. If so, this post is in the wrong forum!!
