Instead of wasting your time with Ad-Aware there are better programs. Ad-Aware is not what it used to be IMO. MBAM (Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware) is about the best program out there. The free version works fine but doesn't have real time protection. The paid version has that but if you just want an on demand scanner it is great and their support forum is much better that Ad-Aware's.
Hi, I have an old Pentium III that I have been teaching. (My real machine's motherboard took the old dumpo.) Everything I have installed or downloaded and installed has worked properly so far. The machine has Windows XP Pro for an operating system.
I have tried to download Lavasoft's Ad-Aware on this slow dial-up about 10 times now in the last two days at various times of the day or night. Sometimes the download fails halfway through. Other times it says the download completes (35.7m). I think, "Great," but it either will not install or it says it installs but when I try to run it it says an error in different dll files each time I try. Help. I have used Ad-Aware on various machines since it's inception about 10 years ago and have had no problems with it. Does anyone have any suggestions or fixes? Please Help...signed: frustrated.
