:angry: Each time I run the scan (Ad-aware 2010 free edition), it freezes when I get to c:\documents and settings\application data\mozilla\firefox. Then I close it. After that I can't open Ad-aware again. I use Windows XP Pro. Any suggestions on what I need to do to get past this and get the scan to start and finish?

Have you updated version 8.2 within the last few days? If not, use Web Update since a fix for scan problems was released. Also, try disabling the resident protection of any security programs to see if you can complete a scan.
