I Wonder Where They Asked ''for Public Comment''.....

certainly nowhere I roam. If they keep deleting like they are, perhaps the downloads will become much quicker!!LOL
Much prefer Spybots method of: untick and leave us the choice to re-tick as we see fit. I'm sure Sony will play nice for a little while at least maybe whenU also, but, Sylvester may swear off eating Tweety Birds, that doesn't mean Tweety should close his eyes for too long. Wink

If you are sure that you have the ref file that detects
by Donna Buenaventura / November 22, 2005 11:12 PM PST

WhenU/SaveNow, you can simply copy the ref file from Ad-aware SE directory and save it somewhere then use it whenever you want by simply replacing the old and new ref files. However, doing that is not recommended because some detections are being updated/improved because of variants.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
