Addition to not behaving post
Posted 16 July 2012 - 12:53 PM
I now have everything turned off except anti-virus, which I can't turn off, and e-mail protection. Several time a day I an still getting a pop up that tells me the server is not available. I don't care - I don't want it. Many times a day, I get a pop up the tells me Ad Aware will protect my system. I don't need this pop up. Yesterday I was rendering a short video and stepped away for a few minutes. When I came back, I found Ad Aware had started a virus scan which blew the whole video thing. I have that turned off also but it ran anyway. I also get daily reminders that my pro version will expire in xx number of days.
Reading other posts, maybe it should be noted or suggested to uninstall previous versions before adding 10.1 I did not. If no one has any other suggestions, I will go back to 9.6 and wait for the next version.
My system is Win XP Pro, service pack 3 and all updates. Running a AMD 3.2 64 but processor. I do have Avast anti virus installed and have had that for years with no conflect with Ad Aware 9.6.

It is not recommended to use Ad-Aware 10 together with another antivirus program, just as it isn't recommended to run Norton and Avast at the same time. Ad-Aware 10 has full real-time protection while Ad-Aware 9 Free only has a limited real-time protection, which usually works together with other antivirus programs. Even if LS Digger Barnes' explanation about possible conflicts with other security programs in the post http://www.lavasofts...ndpost&p=125582 is written for Ad-Aware 9 Pro, the principle is still the same. A more technical explanation is written in http://www.lavasofts...post__p__136994 by LS Andy.

You can still use Ad-Aware 9.6 and it can be downloaded from FileHippo.
Regarding your different kinds of issues:
Please, write the exact error message, maybe it is that Ad-Aware cannot reach the update server.
Maybe you should turn on "Gaming mode", I think that would stop Ad-Aware from doing scans and other things while you render videos.
In the pop-up with a reminder that the trial soon will expire, please click the grey "Activate" button and register for an Ad-Aware 10 Free Antivirus+ license. When you have entered the license key, you will not get any more reminders.

Install Ad Aware free +. Good install , but tool a looooong time to update. I have enables antivirus, safe browsing, and real time protection. Page says I need pro version to enable e-mail protection.
Doing some checking just now and i find I have the wrong program. It's listed as version 10.1.211.3382. Evidently did something wrong.
How and where do I find version 10.2?

If you click on Options on the main screen of Ad-Aware, you will find a possibility to check if there is a newer version available.

Finished setting and closed program, at which time it locked up (or I thought it did) again. I went for coffee and when I came back, the program was closed. Wanted to make sure options were all set right, so I clicked on Ad Aware, and I got the Orange and black screen with the yellow bar. It ran for over 5 minutes and didn't do anything. Had to hard reboot. Clicked to open Firefox and waited almost 5 minutes for it to open. Once open, it worked fine. Same with all other programs on this computer.
At this time I have completely removed Ad Aware and all things are back to normal. I will install version 9.6 again, and Avast so I have my e-mail and other protection again.
I'll keep an eye here and if things improve, I'll be back.

Are you aware of that you need to run a special clean-up program to remove everything of Avast?
