This is the only thing I have.. besides AVG. I tried uninstalling it now and it says it can't and I don't have the permission or something like that. I'll try again and come back with the specific message. I just went back and clicked show message again and it sent me to a screen that said that it crashed and wanted to send the crash report to lavasoft. I clicked to send it and after a while it said that it couldn't. So, I clicked on return to windows and it's fine. It hasn't popped up yet but it's only been a minute or so. I'm sure it'll be back. But I'm off to try again.

You might try doing a computer restart.

K, so I guess what I did worked. I uninstalled it after trying to send the report and it finally worked. Then, I installed the new one and restarted just to make sure it was working and it restarted REALLLY really really slow...but I'm here. So, I'm going to my parents tomorrow so I'm not going to shut this thing down til I go...So I hope it keeps working until then anyway.


Thanks again for all your help.

no problem glad its working. You might run the ad aware scan when you get a chance.

Morning all,

Sorry for not seeing this message earlier.

I don't think it was a problem with the ad-aware but a problem with permissions to run the adaware service. Awservice.exe is the service which runs automatically at the background when you install Ad-Aware. By looking at the message it seemed that Vista didn't want it to run and kept asking your permission.

Uninstall ad-aware would have helped and re-installing (which you eventually did) however I would have gone into the services window and would have set it to "Automatic".

Here how you could have done it.

1: Click Start (that blob thing which has windows logo on)
2: Click Run
3: type Services.msc
4: Search for awservice.exe
5: right click on it and click properties
6: select automatic from drop down menu and click apply.
7: done

Saying that sometimes awservice.exe is a spyware too. In that case you could run Spybot or Malwarebytes onto your computer (both are free).

AVG would only catch spywares if you are using their AVG Internet security package, not Free version.

Personally I wouldn't use Ad-aware as it is not as good as Malwarebytes

If I was you I would because that piece of thing can take any kind of Spyware out from your computer.

Infact I use it on some customer computers to get rid of nasty Spywares.

Rest upto you
