For about the past month, I've been having tracking cookie problems on my computer. As a result I get fed a bunch of spam emails. I started working through hijack log analysis walkthrough and came to a problem with downloading Ad-aware. It seems to download fine, but during start-up I get a 'system error: 6000' message and the program closes. Any thoughts?

Seems like a common problem with the latest version of Ad-aware:
Error: 6000

And that's just one, of several topics about that error, which appears to have no solution.

I suggest you try an older version of Ad-aware.
You can get a copy at this link, at the bottom of the page.
Try Ad-aware 1.06 (3 MB).
