I thought there used to be a tutorial to tell u what setting & type of Scan to do when using Ad-aware. I cannot find it. Can someone help?

Also, is there an order if I should do Ad-Aware 1st & then Spybot?

Thx!

Run ADAWARE

Install the program and launch it.

First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

From main window :Click Start then under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

Next deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

Now to scan just click the Next button.

When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it.(Right-click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and click Next)

And you can check out this link for more information about Adaware SE

I like to run S & D first but it really does not matter which one you run first
