I am running the free version of AA AE. According to the description this should include AdWatch Basic. I am unable to activate this feature. The FAQ said I needed to activate Adaware to do this by clicking the "Register"button. What do I do once I have clicked the button?

Good question. Is it showing like mine? I think mine is active from what these screens show...

No, my AdWatch icon is grey and I can't turn any of it on.

Ok at least we know we have differences here. One of the advisors should be along to answer your question soon, tomorrow maybe?

Hello tigerman910 :D
just found this ...

For a 32bit operating system.
Go to, (the default installed location)
C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\drivers\32
Right click on the 'lbd.inf' file and choose install, reboot the computer.

For a 64bit operating system.
Go to, (the default installed location)
C:\Program Files(x86)\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\drivers\64
Right click on the 'lbd.inf' file and choose install, reboot the computer.

----
Let me know how it works
