Ad-Aware 10.x's email issues
Posted 29 June 2012 - 05:15 PM
I am using Ad-Aware for the last 4 or 5 years, without any important issue
I have 2 computers (XP and Win 7). Ad-Aware 10.x works fine with my Win7 computer
I send and receive emails only in my Win XP computer using Outlook Express. I have several email addresses, hosted in different servers. One of the servers is my Internet Provider (Bell). After I installed AA10, I am not able to send emails using these 3 email adresses (receiving is OK). Sending and receiving using the remaining addresses (the "no Bell" addresses) are working OK
Two technicians checked the computer and found the same problem: Ad-Aware. 10.1
FYI: the setting of the email protection was "off"
Unfortunatelly, after I uninstalled Ad-Aware, the 3 Bell email addresses are working fine.
So... my questions are --> is there anything I can try? any idea in order to deal with this issue? as all was working fine with version 9.6, should I go back to this version?
(Sorry for the long story...)

You could try to use Ad-Aware 10, but turning off "Shop & Bank Safety Online", "Safe Networking" and/or "Safe Browsing". Maybe one of them blocks a web address.
I think "E-mail Protection" is checking the content of emails and not where the mails are sent.

Thank you for your answer
The only options activated are
- Antivirus and Antispyware
- Real Time protection

Ok. Any difference if you turn off one of those two features?
What is the address to the e-post server that doesn't work?
I can ask my contact person at Lavasoft on Monday, if they know anything about this problem.

Nope, no difference. The only event that makes difference is if I unistall Ad Aware of if I deactivate it (via Task manager)
The email server is sympatico.ca (from Bell Canada)
Thank you again,

How are you deactivating Ad-Aware? Please, explain in detail.

As I explained, I used the Task manager to deactivate --> processes --> adawarebp.exe --> Services --> adware services --> services --> the 2 services

I'm sure Lavasoft will appriciate the information.
adawarebp.exe is the browser protection process and it should only be involved in surfing.

As a matter of fact, the Bell's tech was the person who deactivated AA. He deactivated all the processes and services, and then, he activated / deactivated all these elements separatelly, in order to narrow the problem. When he deactivated AA, he was able to send an email
Thank you again!

Sorry, but my contact person at Lavasoft is very busy at the moment. I will ask again on Thursday.

In th meantime, I uninstalled AA in order to use my emails

I'll ask Lavasoft again tomorrow when my contact person is back in the office.

Lavasoft would like to connect to your computer and investigate why this happens. They need to investigate the problem to be able to find the bug and then be able to fix it. You will see everything they do, every mouse move, programs started etc. Is this acceptable for you?

Someone at Lavasoft will send you a PM, here in the forum, with the information that you need. You two agree about a date and time. You can install Ad-Aware before that time or you can let Lavasoft install Ad-Aware.

It is now after working hours so you will not get a PM today, but some of them will be working tomorrow but they aren't sure that they have time to contact you tomorrow.
