Am Running Windows 98 and have been a user of Ad-Aware SE.

Found This forum from Google originally to find fix for these errors that occur on Start-Up:


Began the following:
- Ran - cleanmgr, cleaned out temporary internet files and temp file
- Then tried to run Ad-Aware SE, error occurred:
"Adware caused an initial page default in module KERNEL32.DLL at 017f:bff714ac"

Currently I am unable to run Ad-Aware to proced to the next steps to eliminate malware or spyware on this computer.

Any help would be appreciative....

Regards, Wonder....

Hi wonder,

Welcome to BleepingComputer...

I would recommend following this post : Start Here

It has great information for removing spyware, and if needed posting a HJT log. Since AdAware is having problems, an HJT post may be needed.

I hope this helps,
