Dawn,

Have you updated Ad-Aware & Spybot - S & D?

Ad-Aware has a way newer version.

Ad-aware SE Personal
http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download/

Spybot - S & D is at version 1.4.0.3

Spybot S & D
http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?lang=en&page=...

You may have CoolWebSearch.

CoolWebSearch may be causing the Ad-aware problem.

Download Ad-aware Cloak 1.0
and
CWShredder

CWShredder ver. 2.15
http://aumha.org/freeware/freeware.php#cwshred

CWShredder ver. 2.13 direct download:
http://www.aumha.org/downloads/cwshredder.zip

Ad-aware Cloak 1.0
[[Ad-aware Cloak is designed to allow Ad-aware to open fully when there are
items on the system which close Ad-aware when it attempts to start, such as
some CoolWebSearch variants. To use Ad-aware Cloak, save it to your system,
and run the program before opening Ad-aware. Once Ad-aware Cloak opens,
click "Activate Cloak" and then open Ad-aware and scan as normal. When you
are done using Ad-aware, close
Ad-aware Cloak. ]]
