I just upgraded to Ad-Aware Plus, and I'm trying to turn on its antivirus function, but it keeps telling me there's another antivirus installed that would interfere with it. I had ClamWin installed, but I removed it when I upgraded. I have no idea what else it might be talking about. Is there some way to make it tell me what's blocking it?

At the moment the only thing that i can think of is did you reboot the computer after uninstall of clamwin just before you tried to install Ad-Aware? It may have left things running that are not completely removed until the computer is rebooted. I just looked at clamwin and it is an on demand scanner only and has no real time protection so it should not interfere with Ad-Aware at all. There must be something else running that is causing this.
