Ad-aware SE freezes

By Pazuzu

  1. I use Ad-aware SE personal build 1.05 - currently with Definitions file SE1 R46 17.05.2005.
    Until recently it has worked well, but for some reason it keeps freezing - first on 754 objects scanned, then 718, lastly on 699. This happens when scanning the Program files directory.When I hit Ctrl. Alt. Del. to check activity all looks normal - when I look a second time it shows Ad-aware "not responding". When running normally it used to get up to 3500 plus objects scanned if memory serves me well.
    Has anyone experience of this problem? I tend to run this several times a day to keep the aged PC/software platform running as fast as possible - I also use Ccleaner & Spy-bot search & destroy.

    Uninstall the programme, then reboot your system, and reinstall.

    If that doesn`t help, post back.

    Regards Howard :)

    Spybot/Adaware once a week is good enough normally.

    Where are you surfing, that you need it a few times per day?

    The truth hurts

    An astute observation Realblackstuff - I might say I have been "caught fishing in a most peculiar river" - even so I only find 3-5 tracking entries per day - sometimes none. I will reform - at least when my subscription expires in ten days.
    The puzzle remains though - why does it keep freezing?
    Thanks Howard- I will try reinstalling.
