Hi bigjake24,

Please see this page in the manual: https://www.adaware.com/user-guide/manage_exclusions

If you run a scan while Kaspersky's antivirus program is running, the following will happen:
1. Adaware requests to open a file.
2. Kaspersky's notices the request and wants to scan the file too.
3. Sometimes when Kaspersky's checks the file, it'll create a temporary file.
4. Adaware wants to scan that temporary file.

As you can see, the simple scan can turn into almost a nightmare of scanning files when two antivirus program are running and one of them runs a scan. Please, make sure that Kaspersky's antivirus program is disabled while running a scan with Adaware antivirus.

I turned off kapersky and started a scan it says it found 752 thousand infected files and would take 178 days to scan that did not work.

Very strange indeed.
I'm sorry but some combinations of antivirus programs don't work.

Impossible to say.

Can you give some examples of the files that Adaware found, Windows' files, your own pictures etc.?
