Goodbye Ad Aware?

Question

I thought I had purchased a good product until Ad Aware started detecting malware from product that I have trusted for a long time. I have used Easy Hide IP because it is the ONLY address changer that will function using MSN Explorer. It was turned off without asking. I went in an edited the rules [u]only to have them changed back by Ad Aware[/u]. I have also used Advanced Privacy Cleaner for years only to have it cripped by AA for a Trojan. I had used Avira Antivirus Premium without any detections. I also was forced to remove Avira because Ad Aware will not function with active protection with any other anti virus software installed. I have the Ad Watch Live! turned off and now the program will NOT load at start up and may or may not load at all. I will NOT remove either Advanced Privacy Cleaner, nor East Hide. Any solution to bypass or edit the rules and have them stick? I had to reinstall Avira in order to be protected. I guess that I can use it if I get redirected by hijacking or suspect "real" malware. Thanks for any help in this matter, it is appreciated!

Did you update Ad-Aware to v8.2.1? Also it is never recommended to have more than one real time scanner active on your computer, it causes conflicts. And you really don't need to hide your IP unless you are doing something illegal.

Also since you have a paid version of Ad-Aware you can contact customer support directly, the link is in my signature below. Edited by cressy
