To use Ad-Aware SE with Windows Scheduled Tasks, you must be running either Ad-Aware SE Plus / Professional. The Professional version, however, will give you more functionality if you should require this.

All the command line parameters can be used with Ad-Aware SE via the Windows Scheduled Tasks, but Ad-Aware SE provides two predefined scans: /smart and /full that are particularly useful for running as scheduled commands.

A smart scan will scan the key system areas and could be run on a daily basis whilst a full scan that includes all the local disk partitions could be run once a week. These predefined scans could be combined with the +nice parameter to run the task at a lower priority so as to give the interactive user the best system response times. If the system has an always on connection to the Internet the +update command line option could also be used to automatically update the defintions file before running the scan, and if used with the +nodefnotice option this will prevent the notification window when the definitions file is old.

sample command lines for use in Windows Scheduled Tasks for dial-up user:

CODE

%programfiles%\lavasoft\ad-aware SE professional\ad-aware /smart +nice+2

%programfiles%\lavasoft\ad-aware SE professional\ad-aware /full +nice+2



sample command lines for use in Windows scheduler for "always-on" user:

CODE

%programfiles%\lavasoft\ad-aware SE professional\ad-aware /smart +nice+2 +nodefnotice +update

%programfiles%\lavasoft\ad-aware SE professional\ad-aware /full +nice+2 +nodefnotice +update
