Unable to start a new scan
Posted 25 November 2012 - 09:49 PM
I'm trying to fix an issue with my AdAware free. I'd like to do a full scan, but when I pull up the program, and go to the Scan menu, I can choose which scan I want to do, but the "scan" button that will start the scan is greyed out, and I don't know what happened. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but that doesn't help. It also doesn't matter which scan type I choose (ie. quick, full or custom), I can't start any one of them!
Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, some kind of error was introduced in an update about 24 hours ago and that stopped the possibility to scan. But it should be fixed in the latest update. Please, update by first clicking on "Settings" to the right on the main screen of Ad-Aware, and then "Check for updates". If still impossible to scan, please wait until tomorrow.

Is the computer connected to internet through a proxy server?
That isn't supported by Ad-Aware 10. It doesn't seem to be a general update issue, since I got new definitions 5 minutes ago.
Please, report back, if you have the same issue tomorrow, and I'll ask my contact person at Lavasoft.

- downloaded definitions updates without problems
- i am using Windows 7 64-bit, with no proxies (fiber internett)
- Scan button greyed out on all search options.

Have you restarted the computer since you installed Ad-Aware?

What is the "Threat definition version" according to "Update Definitions" tab?
Have you got any messages from AVG regarding Ad-Aware?
Sometimes antivirus programs and firewalls blocks Ad-Aware, but, according to my contact person at Lavasoft, your combination worked well when all questions from AVG regarding Ad-Aware were answered with allow or similar term.

It was probably ZoneAlarm that blocked it.
When I clicked allowed on all there, I could scan. ♥
