Guides: How to use AdAware
- Go to Start>Programs>LavaSoft Adaware6>Adaware6.exe
- Please use either the Custom Scan with Memory and Both registry scansON.
- Make sure that you activate IN-DEPTH scanning before you proceed.NOTE: If you used any other AntiTrackware application to remove detected content immediately prior to running a scan with Ad-aware 6 you will need to perform a Custom Full System scan to ensure that the objects have all been successfully removed by that product.
- Then it is recommend that you have these options checked:
Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks >
* Scanning Engine:
“Unload recognized processes during scanning.”
Under Ad-aware 6 > Settings (Gear at the top) > Tweaks > Cleaning Engine:
“Let Windows remove files in use after reboot.”
- Click on “Scan Now”
- Change the Scan Mode from “Smart Scan” to the “Use Custom Scanning Options” and make sure the “Activate In-Depthscan” is ON.
- Run Ad-aware 6. Quarantine everything that you find.
- Exit AdAware and go to the next step – RunSpybot Search and Destroy.
