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!!!
