I use AdAware Personal free, version Build 1.05 (no ad-watch).
Panda tech told me that any other antivirus program, ad blocker,
spyware blocker, etc. will interfere with their scan.
I thought maybe, if I turned off AdAware, and I assume there is a way
to do this through one of the configuration features on 1.05
I could try to do the scan and see if that makes a difference.
I use only one antivirus program on my machine and have never installed
any other AV program on it. Everyday I get daily signature file updates from
Panda, so that feature is working correctly.

The latest version has been out for a quite some time now and the bugs have been worked out. Thus, your reason here for not doing so is no longer applicable.
And last, one reason why I have not accepted the newest version of Adaware, is that I have read that newer doesn't always mean better. Best to let others run into the bugs first, and then adopt the newest version.
Ad-aware does not run in the background. It only runs when you manually launch the program and perform a scan.
Again, I ask, if I re-install the AV program, should I not uninstall Adaware first, or is it ok to keep it "alive" since as you said, its scan from the free version is done only manually?
I had thought that somewhere in the background, AA was running.
