    I downloaded ad-aware 1.04 onto my W98 machine, and then copied
    it to my W95, as was suggested in another thread. The process worked
    fine, however, it will not fully complete a full system scan. After scanning
    over 100K objects, it freezes. I can only recover by Ctrl-Alt-Del killing it.
    Then I find well over 40 meg of files in Windows\Temp folder, which I have
    been deleting, to recover the drive space. I hope I'm not losing valuable
    data???
    It seems to stop at the same point every time I attempt to run it.
    I think the scan is almost done, as it crashes on the folders most recently
    created.

    Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, OldJoe

    SUPER!!!!!
    Version 1.05 full system scan ran completely & fully on my W95 platform
    for the first time...(found 22 bad things which I successfully quarentined.
    Furthermore, it left nothing behind in my windows\temp folder..(Clean job)
    (HIWIRE seems to have been the biggest offender)...
    My earlier struggles with version 1.04 had logged other objects which I
    selectively eliminated using regedit and plain old "delete", before consulting
    you experts.
    Thanks, again!!!
