[Ad-Aware Pro] Stuck on "cleaning in progress"

Recommended Posts

The full system scan I did today took around 2 hours to complete, but as of now (another 2 hours), it's still stuck on "cleaning in progress". I'm not sure if it's even doing anything because the CPU usage light doesn't reflect it. Did anyone else have this problem, and know what's happening? Should I just let it keep "cleaning" or just force quit it? It's funny because I didn't even get to see the results of the scan or choose what I want to do; when I came back to check it was already on "cleaning in progress".

Hi,

If you run a scan in simple mode, Ad-Aware will automatically take the recommended action for you. If you run a scan in advanced mode then you get to choose.

I would recommend trying to find what it was that Ad-Aware was trying to clean via your scan logs. If you then think that you do have an infection then possibly post a HJT log in the HJT forum for analysis.
