Ad-Watch not working on Ad-Aware AE

Recommended Posts

Running Windows 7... Ad-Aware Anniversary Edition 8.0.7... previously had no problems with this program on this OS... now Ad-Watch Live refuses to initialize itself... keep getting message to "restart computer to finalize installation of Ad-Watch Live"... restart doesn't help, and no documentation on the Lavasoft website... I come here hoping some very smart person will able to help me with this :)

Best solution I can think of is remove Adaware and use Malwarebytes which is vastly superior

Definitely switch to MBAM. Like Mike said, MBAM is far more superior to Ad-Aware, which is bloated and slow.

I'm surprised Ad-Watch is the only issue with the AE build, the whole package won't even install on some computers.

why replace ad-aware with malwarebytes? keep both no harm in that

 

There is no harm in keeping your old car once you have brought a new one. But it takes up space & chances are you wont be using it,

well if thats how you feel but ad-awares scanner is very good imo and it only takes about 30 secs to do a quick scann its also extremely light on resources with real-time or not. So thats my opinion on it

No real helpful responses there... :unsure:

 

But it takes up space

 

I have a 500gb harddrive that's around 95% free, so no biggie there :lol:

Interesting. I had the opposite problem. I couldn't get it to stop running - and eating up all the CPU. Once upon a time it was a clean little, well-behaved app but that was before the birth of the monster, Anniversary Edition. I had to get rid of it and that wasn't easy either. It will never darken my hard drive again.

 

Malware Bytes, on the other hand, is sweet on the system.
