Bug Report: Ad-Aware breaks Everything file search

Recommended Posts

"Everything" is a freeware file and folder name search utility that is renowned for the speed of its searches. It offers the full range of Windows Explorer functions from the right-click context menu for each item in search results. Under Windows XP SP2, as soon as I request Ad-Aware 9-06 to add itself to the context menu for Explorer, the right-click functionality in Everything is lost. Any attempt to right-click immediately causes the application to crash. Removing Ad-aware from the menu immediately fixes the problem.

Attached are the text output from WinDbg when running the "!analyze -v" command on a minidump file produced by the crash, which is also attached.

Hello LavaJ431

I will put this in our bug list to look in to, it may take a bit as we have a few widespread bugs we are looking in to at the moment... Will get back when I know something.

Hello LavaJ431

We have been trying to reproduce this with the latest version of Ad-Aware and "Everything" but with no success... Can you try the latest versions of both and let me know if it is still and issue? It is possible that Everything has made a change to resolve this.
