AAWService does not activate

2 posts in this topic

Hello,

I've been using AA for several months in 3 computers, I have always updated manually, but recently I decided to set update to auto, I noticed that sometimes the AAWService does not turn on at startup even though it is set to automatically run in services. Sometimes it runs, soemtimes it doesnt, but its suppose to run no question, why doesn't it do so all the time? is this a bug? AA is now version 9. Hopefully somebody will confirm this cz its a BIG negative for AA.

Just had a Win 7 user who said he fixed it by installing the old version Ad-Aware SE first, then installed version 9:

Only Lavasoft will know if it's a bug affecting a vast number of users - seems like a small number here on this forum, so it may depend on system configuration, applications running, etc. than an outright software error. Since version 8.3, AAWTray.exe is started by AAWService instead of a startup entry in msconfig, but I'm not sure if this is related to the service not starting.
