Spyware Doctor is a better program.

Ditch that and use the new Microsoft Spyware remover.

I purchased it 8 months ago and it worked great, UNTIL they notified me that they a newer version out and I have to BUY it again. For some mysterous reason my current version has expired and will no longer update. Pretty damn good when you actually pay for a product and they can turn it off.

Uninstall AdAware, run CCleaner, run Spybot S&D, then reinstall AdAware and see if it works.

Uninstall it, reload your purchased version and dont update it.

Trying executing your current version after you boot the computer in safe mode.

Yes I can read, but not everybody is an ASSHOLE like you!!

I've seen Ad-Aware appear to hang up or crash when it's scanning systems with millions of cookies stored. It will appear to just sit there for five minutes and then it'll do something, then it will stare at you for a while, etc. Took about an hour to scan the machine. Of course, the machine turned out not only to have a jillion cookies stored but to be infested with spyware as well.

I had to remind the person to delete all their cookies before they ran a scan and to stop installing purple gorrillas and shit on their computer.

Not that this is what is up with yours, but I have seen that cause a problem.

Just this past week both Adaware and Spybot seem to be "hanging up". Somethings not right here... maybe a new hack. I have a redirector in explorer I couldn't get rid of so I switched to firefox.

so half your post was a fucking waste.

Half of mine, but all of yours was a waste. I think you need to chill down your self. Your the one coming out of the chutes with the wise cracks when I am offering advise, plain and simple.

And your point is what exactly? I was joking around with you earlier, hence the smiley. But you up and called me an ASSHOLE. I saw no smiley so there for you were serious, therefore I could fucking care less.

edit: no more on this, dont wanna get his thread locked.... Good day ol' chaps.

Agrred, part my error on not seeing smiley. TRUCE IN EFFECT. . . .
Any way, I apologize for my actions,
and I would try getting Registry Mechanic and running that. Are you manually looking in the registry?

Been a shitty week, and well this was the straw that broke the back i guess.... My bad...

Ad-Aware isn't as good as it used to be. Get Spybot Search & Destroy. It's free.

Last time I ran AdAware on a user's PC, it said the system was clean, even though I could see obvious spyware. Ran Spybot S&D, and it found 9 spyware programs. I don't use AdAware much anymore.

Haven't had any issues w/ mine...yet. And I run both Adware and Spybot.....
