Adaware shut down

  asrobs 11:16 02 Nov 2009

HI, It appears that there is a problem with the free version of Adaware,on running a scan the error shown on screen says-ADAWARE WAS SHUT DOWN UNEXPECTEDLY AND HAS GENERATED A REPORT, IT THEN GIVES YOU THE CHOICE OF SENDING OR NOT SENDING THE REPORT TO ADAWARE.On their forums it appears to have begun over the last couple of months,since the only members allowed to post are the ones who have paid for Adaware, I understand, but fear that it does mean that unless they issue a solution then there is no point in running the free version since the bug will not be removed even by reinstallation of the free software.

I have noticed this problem as well. In fact I have now removed Ad Aware from my PC as it seems unable to complete anything without this message.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Sometimes Malware gets into your computer which stops security programs from updating.
But if the rest of your security programs are updating it will not be that.
