For a long time, my HP A6 laptop would constantly give me an 'AW Snap' message on the internet, then bluescreen, to the point of making the computer unusable, then it stopped doing it for several months. Now it is doing the same thing. I ran the ADWCleaner and it did not help.
I tried a system restore. On two of the checkpoints, I get a message '...adthis_widget(1).js could not be replaced with its original copy from the restore point.' I deleted the file and still get that message. Not only that, but that file is part of an 'online' textbook which I am no longer using.
On another checkpoint, the computer bluescreens in the middle!
If I can somehow get the restore to skip that file, I can at least get the restore to work, unless of course, it bluescreens in the middle.
