I have searched the postings for answers to my particular query but have only been able to find the answer on how to retain registry changes by having Ad Watch set to Active mode only.
1) Registry change notification.
How does the pop up screen work? When an attempt to change a registry entry takes place how can I be notified? I have now set Ad Watch to load at start up. Before I had to start Ad Aware / Ad Watch for it to tell me that a registry attempt had taken place. Will I now get a pop up screen to tell me as it happens?
2) Ezula.com not listed in the scan.
I see that url's from ezula.com should be blocked, so why did I have to delete ezula.com within BT Yahoo Anti Spy after I ran a scan there? I do not understand how this works in Ad Watch. I simply want to block all attempts at alterations to my registry as they happen. I cannot understand why I now have to manually scan the registry to delete numerous ezula and associated ezulamain keys. Is Ad Watch not supposed to stop these entries taking place or at least give me the option to allow or block as they happen? How are these Spyware entries bypassing 2 Anti-Spyware programs, Lavasoft Ad Aware Plus and SpyBot Search & Destroy and possibly BT Yahoo Anti-Spy? Should I also be adding these url's to my blocking cookies in FireFox?
3) Something is wrong with my help link.
When I loaded up Ad Watch it told me there had been an attempt at changing a registry entry - what this change related to I have no idea because when I clicked the 'what action to take' help link at the bottom of the screen all it did was load up my desktop file.
Can you tell me why it does this and how to change the link so it gives me information on how to deal with the problem. It is almost impossible to make a decision here without some help. It is not possible to close the screen without making a judgement one way or the other.
