Aaw 2007 Wont Start Scanning
Posted 13 July 2007 - 04:04 PM
AAW 2007 is up to date with definitions and software updates
Whenever I try to start a scan, it just sits there and sais:
Current section: Scanning active processes
Current path: Waiting for scanner...
Current object: Waiting for scanner...
Selected Scan Mode: Full Scan
Definitions File: 0008.0000
And nothing happens for hours....
And hitting 'Stop scan' does nothing at all....
Using Win2k SP4 with all patches

Be sure to update to the latest version of Ad-Aware as I believe this problem was corrected in a subsequent update last week. See this topic (user also running W2k)
(waiting for scanner problem - now resolved)

I'm using version 19.0000, updated just tonight (9/9/07 at 9:29pm CDT)
I try to run a full scan. . .Ad-Aware just says Waiting for scanner. . .and does nothing.
Also, when I rerun the Update, I get no message saying that I already have the latest update. Ad-Aware should always return a message whether I'm current or an update is needed, right?

This problem started with 126.96.36.199 and I'd hoped that the new version would fix it but it's the same.
Have others experienced this problem lately on Windows 2000 SP4 with all patches applied?

This may be a work-around for some - it worked for me!
