Yes, the new version of adaware runs the same way as the old one. You should get a box saying items deleted. I would try running the scan again, as I have had a similar problem with Spybot S & D, where it seems to run on for ages before removing the items ticked.

Or restart in Safe Mode click here and run Ad-aware.

Hi, I have just run a full scan, after deletion (20 objects), closed program - no problems.

cheers vog ran it in safe mode using ststem cogig utility and it removed 37 items 6 objects could not be removed they where somethin like this .

c/restore.temp ad257806cpy
also in systm conf util i had a check mark in selective start up is this correct or should i have normal start up checked .

To get rid of the ones in c:\restore\temp turn off System Restore then turn it back on again click here

This will delete al your existing restore points (together with the spyware stored in them).
