re Ad-aware
« on: August 09, 2005, 09:37:23 AM »
Last week my computer was infected through MSN messenger. Since then my AVG has found 8 virures.  I downloaded Ad-aware Se but when I run it my computer keeps sending me a notice of illegal operation 02i5lp04 message of invalid page faults.  When I bypass it the program finishes but  after the  quarantee my computer freezes and will not remove the infected files.  I had 539 of those so quite a number.  Please help.

Use both a hardware and software firewall.
Be advised as dual software firewalls may cause problems

This is Win 98 SE and I am using AVG Free antivirus program which did catch it.  So far they have 16 files in the fault.  however the Ad-Aware does not work in the final stage to remove the 359 files which are on the computer.  I have no experience in this kind of thing.THANKS for your help.

Try scanning in safe mode. Use different spyware scanners as well.

I run both Ad-Aware AND Spy-Bot, as they both seem to clean different corners. I had a similar problem about a year ago, and after booting in Safe Mode, disconnecting my internet connection, running both spyware programs, my anti-virus full scan (NAV 2004 at the time), then doing a reboot, it seemed to get along just fine. I got all of those updated as soon as I could get back on the internet, and ran them all again, just to be sure.
Hope it works for you!

    If you don't know the answer, it isn't a dumb question.

      Download & run http://www.ccleaner.com first.
      Then do the Adaware & Spybot thing.

        Is this a question?
        If your adaware definitions are so out of date with no new definitions available then I suggest your adaware core is out of date. When this happens adaware stop giving new definitions without telling you why.
        I think the current core is 1.06r1.

            Merlin_2

            The latest definition update for Build 1.06r1 is .......10.08.2005 .........

            Perhaps your using an old build .......

            When did M/S aquire the Company in Europe that produces SpyBot ?


            Cheers

            Msoft backed out of the deal with spybot.........due to conflict of who owns it?  the adaware solved.........moved the updates to 999 days...... ;D
