A lot of people have had a problem with the newest build of AdAware SE, v. 1.04, including me. Once installed, it would hang on
I would have to End Task to close the program after canceling (?) the scan. This was done after a clean install--uninstalled the old AAW before installing 1.04. I tried a few different configurations and some other tricks, but the scan always hung.
After reading the extensive discussion at Lavasoft support;http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?s...opic=44975&st=0
the trick appears to be to make sure the setup (installer) file is of the right size. Once downloaded, and you check Properties, if the file aawsepersonal.exe is 2,626,237 bytes, once installed, it will hang during a scan. If it is 2,624,460 bytes, then it should run OK.
The Majorgeeks and Download.com mirrors seem to be working, i.e., the file size is right. Other mirrors, check the file size before installing. Choose the mirrors from here:http://www.lavasoftusa.com/Recap:
2,624,460 bytes --is good
2,626,237 bytes --is bad
