Adaware se keeps freezing

  mpez 16:20 28 Dec 2004

I have had adaware for about 6 months or so now with no problem, i keep up to date etc, just recently it stops all together on something that says local temps/word8.0. I come out of it all together only by using the task manager because it will not close off or anything. Should I uninstall it a reinstall again? Any help would be appreciated. I also have spybot SD, spywareblaster, A2, registry medic and sypware doctor all working fine, but i would like my adaware back.

many thanks

before giving in.

I had a similar problem but left it for an hour or so and it did the business eventually.

Has worked fine since.

message in Task Manager.

Ignore this and give it chance.

This was an issue with one of the builds (1.03 or 1.04 I think).

You could make sure that you have the latest (1.05) - use the "i" toolbar button, top right, to find out. The latest version is available from click here

thanks halmer i wll give it ago first. Vog i have the 1.03 version if i download the 1.05 version would i have to unistall my version first or just install it as usual?

Best to uninstall 1.03 first.

Or, come to think of it, I think that the new version will detect the old version and uninstall it.

hi again, downloaded 1.05 version , ran it and found about 190 objects, selected all, next and still nothing happened, would not close off again. Had a look in settings , i think they are ok, but not sure. My spyware doctor keeps findng NewDot and cannot remove one file, so i just dont know what to do next. I would like to run adaware in safe mode, but am not sure how to do it .any help would be great, thanks.
