Ad-aware 2007 Free Ram Usage

Recommended Posts

Greetings! I am a brand new Ad-Aware 2007 free user. I think I am excited that it detected a dialer and one other form of malware during its first scan.

 

One question though (and a follow-up). Okay, 2 questions.

 

If real-time protection is disabled in the free version, why does task manager list aawservice.exe using 40Mbytes of memory? I assumed nothing would reside in memory if it isn't actively scanning. Is there a setting to disable aawservice.exe from loading at startup?

Hi, Schly :huh:

It's not the real-time protection ,but the automated start-up scan.

You only have to disable it.

 

 

 

another way is

> start > execute > type ' msconfig ' > system start > disable aawservice.

 

 

 

Hope it helps.

Cheers :D

You shouldn't disable services from msconfig. You should go > start > execute > ' services.msc ' > disable aawservice.

The only way to resolve that is to uninstall Ad-Aware 2007 and return to the prior version (not the prior version of Ad-Aware 2007 of course).

I wonder if this problem exists in the Beta version of Ad-Aware 2007, someone knows ?

try setting it to manual then it will run when you want to scan, of course you will have to stop the service after you have finished scanning ;) ploygon
