Scheduling COMPLETE Tasks in XP

  warthog01 11:08 25 Feb 2006

I'm trying to schedule AdAware to run weekly in the middle of the night. I've set up a scheduled task which does exactly what it is supposed to do--to a point. Adaware pops right up at the appointed time, but requires a "run scan" click from me to proceed any further. I've configured AdAware for automated scans and had hoped the scheduler, combined with this setting would kick off a truly automatic scan while I sleep soundly.

Is there something I'm missing?

Thanks, Fruit Bat, but that is unticked--in startup I've got "perform smart scan" ticked.

You can get Adaware to open but I don't think you can get it to scann automatically needs Start scan and next.

Use windows defender it can be set to autoscan
