I am having a terrible issue with Ad-Aware SE Personal. Everytime I boot my machine I run an Ad-Aware scan and let it do its thing and then I use Enditall to close background processes because I'm a gamer and I like to free resources for that. Anyhow, After I let Ad-Aware update the other day...couple days ago, the program seems to freeze during scans now. It gets to around 55,000-56,000 files scanned and just freezes up. I have to work hard with ctrl+alt+delete to get it shut down. I noticed this all started after the new update file for Ad-Aware a couple days ago and after my girlfriend downloaded Yahoo Games onto my computer, which also installed Yahoo Toolbar. I uninstalled most of that now except for Yahoo Toolbar. I need to get it cleared as well. However, I am having another ongoing issue too, somewhat older than the issue I'm having with Ad-Aware. When I go into my control panel and look at add/remove programs the program list will not populate. It doesn't even when I wait a long period of time. No idea why the list just remains blank. This makes it difficult for me to remove software. As for Ad-Aware, I finally deleted it and downloaded a new copy from download.com. However, it seems to freeze during installation. It gets to the part where it scans the computer for previous versions/ad-aware software and just sits there. I am going to run a full system scan with Norton Anti-Virus and see if that turns up anything. Thanks in advance for help!
