I got the new Adaware 6 Plus finally yesterday. Some of you I'm sure are aware of the problem many people are experiencing with logging off in XP.

The deal is that when I go to restart all it does on the first attempt is close adwatch. On the second attempt it restarts fine but when it restarts an open windows explorer window pops up (Lavasoft folder to be exact).

In the lavasoft Forum there has been acouple of posts in attempt to help. I tried this one below but it didn't work (I posted my negative result in lavasoft forum)



If you see the folder on startup up when ad-watch loads on startup, you can fix this in one of two ways, use msconfig and uncheck on of the lines, or get clsoer to the root fo the problem and remove a line form the registry.
The other I tried but am not computer savvy enough to really understand it (learning)


You can check it out at the Link below.

I kinda thought you Adaware users who are waiting on it might want to know this. I also thought someone else might be able to help me understand this second remedy I posted here. I haven't seen anyone yet in the forum posting what results they had with either one other than myself.

Lavasoft is assuring everone that they are working on a patch.

Oh well my quotes didn't post right.....Long Day!


@all,

As ivo33 has pointed out correctly, the previous startup entries for 5x need to be removed.

Within the Ad-aware folder, you find a file named CODE
unregaaw.exe

Execute it to remove the auto-start entries and shell extension from 5x AND 6.
You will have to re-define the startup settings and shellextension for 6 afterwards though.

Sorry, It didn't make it to the manual ;-)

CDreier:
Ad-aware 6 is continously updated, we try to keep the download version for Plus and Pro as accurate as possible.(That means, whenever it is downloaded it includes the latest versions for all components, including reference- and other support files).
Updates can be downloaded using the information you received for the upgrade.

Regards,
Urizen


This is the second workaround that I don't quite follow.
