Ad-Aware Free causes Blue Screen of Death almost immediately after starting program

Recommended Posts

I recently decided to try the 2010 version of Ad-Aware Free on a Windows 7 Professional 64-bit after a few years of not having the program around. A few seconds after starting the program up after being installed, the entire computer locked up, the audio froze, and the computer threw a BSoD error, requiring a computer restart. (I believe the error was of type "page fault in nonpaged area".) It happened all three times I ran the program. After uninstalling it, there were no more BSoDs. In fact, this was the first time I've ever gotten a BSoD on this Windows 7 machine (had it for a couple months).

As you could probably guess, not being able to start up the program without the software throwing a BSoD kinda limits what I can do with the program...

I've seen 1 or 2, not many, topics - search the board for BSOD - I think Lavasoft may have chimed in on one of the topics.
