How You Should be running a scan using
In many cases I've seen, people don't give importance to
updating the pattern files for Ad-aware or any other Anti-Virus software. This
is a bad idea. The pattern files tells the scan engine which are known
malware. Lavasoft Ad-Aware releases reference file updates frequently and one
must update it before running a scan. Otherwise, detection will be poor.
Running a scan without updating the reference file, is of no use.
Download Ad-Aware from
www.lavasoftusa.com and follow this:
- Start Ad-Aware
- Click "Check for
Updates", "Connect" and download the latest pattern file if available. and
- Click "Start" "Next"
- After the scan is
finished, click "Next"
- Select all the items
Right click on any
object in the "Scan result" list and choose [Select all objects]
- Click Next and click
OK to confirm removal.
