As it's the free version it will just sit there until your run it.

I run it once every other week.

And don't forget to update its definitions before running a scan

I did a full scan when I first used AdAware after that I have used smart scan about every other week.

It pays to run a full scan every other time because I have run a smart scan which has found nothing then a full scan which has found a couple.

thanks all

As a Thread Header "me again" leaves something to be desired.

thanks again all, will think harder about next header as it seems to offend some!

It's not a case of 'offending' people.

If you'd bothered to read the Forum Rules click here you'll see (under Forum Terminology; Thread) that you are expected to give a title to your thread which actually describes your problem.

You may find that your thread is ignored, it is a bit like advertising, you need to catch peoples attention when they see the appropriate heading and think 'oh I know something about that' or 'I wonder if that is like the problem I had'. Hope you take this advice from wee eddie and me in the spirit is is given, not carping but trying to be helpful

no probs thanks once again for help, as i said im new to this and do it as a hobby, for enjoyment!
