Hi all - this is my second post, so I hope I've got it the the right section!
O/S is Windows XP SP3
Avast On-line scanner
Search and Destroy
these programs all start automatically, and this is fine, it's what I want.
I also have Malware Bytes and Ad-Aware installed on my machine,to be used once a month in addition to the other programs mentioned above. I want to manually start these programs, so they are not running all the time, but Ad-Aware has taken to running automatically on start-up
(Malware Bytes does not).
I can find no reference to it in msconfig, or in the startup bit of CCL. Just where the hell is it running itself from? I don't want to uninstall it, because it's nice to run once a month or so, but I don't want it running all the time. It's shown as a current process on the Task Manager.
Help would really be appreciated.
