Is there a way to keep it turned off...It is somewhat of an inconvenience to keep going into the detection Layers section & turning it off constantly.
Again I thank you for my Ad-Aware app. and hope there is an answer to this problem..

If you have another app with real-time protection for running processes, you might try turning off that Ad-Watch module as well (in the same settings screen). That's the only resident protection offered by the free version, so the only module that would use the anti-virus engine.

Turning off that Ad-Watch module doesn't solve the problem of 'Not' being able to turn off the anti-virus engine permanently....
I guess the only solution is to uninstall Ad-Aware & find a replacement....
Thank you !

Thank you; we have added the bug to our issue tracking system.
We’re aware that many people want to use Ad-Aware as an anti-spyware tool only, and we are reviewing the way the AV engine is integrated into Ad-Aware to better facilitate this.
