the list showing what the object is? The exact name & path to the item would be most helpful.
Can you tell it to ignore (temporarily)? Does it just hit the object and crash (can you describe what happens in "Crash? Freezes? Computer re-boots? You have to reboot manually?)?
What other scanners/background guards do you have running? Please be careful to SPELL the programs' names/versions/update dates EXACTLY(in case you've got a malware look/sound alike program).
Do you other scanners scan successfully (AV/Spybot or)?
You could also try booting to "Safe Mode" (by constantly tapping the F8 key at top of keyboard immediately after pushing start button/ arrow key to select mode/& press Enter key). This will prevent many problems from starting to run and may, when you run AdawareSE in safe mode, allow it to remove/quarantine the offender.
Please try this & post back with info & result.
Operating System is XP Home Edition. When I run Adaware A Critical Object is found that shuts the system down. I do not know how to remove this critical object so I can scan the rest of the computer. Could someone please help me. Thanks!
