When I run a full scan on Ad-Adware, it is clearly scanning through all of my files and such. I can't recall how many it goes up to, but it's over 10,000. However, it then flips back to a number in the area of 5500 as it finishes. It says it's scanning the registry, and then goes to the end/result screen. It is working, as it found and let me clean some tracking cookies earlier when I used it. I'm wondering, does the 5000 number refer to the registry it just scanned or is it making a mistake on the files total? I'm just not sure if it's doing something out of the ordinary or not...it's definitely working in the sense of letting me clean things from my PC. And it's running about the normal time of 15-20 min. I thought it normally took longer but it doesn't apparently.
