When I tried to do a full scan, A-A aborted after about 10 seconds.
As in topic 27735, the event viewer showed Error 7031:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7031
The Lavasoft Ad-Aware Service service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 5000 milliseconds: Restart the service.
The log in Kaspersky Antivirus is interesting: it shows "2010-03-22 10:04:04 Process (PID 700) tried to access Kaspersky Anti-Virus process (PID 1644), but the action has been blocked by the Self-Defense component. No action on your part is required." The time of the event checks with when I tried to run the scan. I conclude that KAV is causing A-A to abort.
Going back through the log, I see the same entry in the log (with different PIDs) on the date when I tried scanning with A-A 8.1.
This info may help Lavasoft developers. I'm not sure it helps me, because I don't want to lose KAV's Self Defense.
