Spybot and Adaware unable to run

by mefordham / April 5, 2005 10:43 PM PDT

I have downloaded and installed both Spybot and Adaware. However, when I try to run either problem I get Access Violations and am unable to run the software. Any suggestions please? Thanks

With the tiny amount of information that you have given I can only guess that you are not logged on as an administrator.

what you are seeing is vioations in the memory module or some resource issue.

not a Virus and Security issue.

suggest as a first step that you un install both programs and re- install and try to run.

if you get the message again plz take a screen shot and post in our XP/ Computer Help forums and cross refernce the posts.
