    I downloaded ad aware and was advised when doing it to close any programs
    running, before installing it.

    I knew how to do this on my old Win 95 but not sure how to on XP.

    ( just another dumb question, that the easiest to answer)

    Thanks for any help.

    You're probably ok installing it without ending anything but here's how to do it. Press Alt/Ctrl/Del and Task Manager should appear. Click on the "Applications" tab and you can end them from there ...
