I downloaded Nirsoft Launcher (zip) and expanded it with no problem. This software package contains many small programs to aid in various sorts of maintainence tasks. The 2010 version of Ad Aware (version 8) detected 8 instances of malware and placed them in quarentine. This appears to be mis-identification on the part of the Lavasoft software detection protocol. I need advice on the technique for un-quarentineing these items as nothing happened when I attempted to perform the 'do nothing' Action; do I need to change that Action command and how to do such.

Quarantine is used to isolate and backup objects detected during an Ad-Aware scan. You then have the option to restore them at a later time. Objects that are quarantined will be encrypted and compressed, and can only be read and restored using the Ad-Aware Quarantine list. Objects stored in Quarantine do not pose a threat to your computer.


Restore Quarantined Objects

In the Quarantine list, select the quarantined object or objects you would like to restore by selecting “Restore” from the Action drop-down menu. When you click “Perform Actions Now,” the object/objects will be restored to your system.


Also you should submit these file to the False Positives - Ad-Aware forum. Read these Instructions first.
