I downloaded the Lavasoft Ad-aware...now what do I do. I do not know what to quarantine so that iTunes will work again. Can someone help. I think the Lavasoft Ad-aware is the next step to ending this once and for all.

Gateway, Windows XP

    I quaratined everything becasue what else can you do in a situation like this. The only downside is you lose some cookies for auto sigin, etc. but it's a small price to pay. My problem is gone for good.
    Another hint from my ordeal: the program found ceres.dll and couldn't quarantine until after re-boot. You have to run it again after re-boot to get rid of it.
    then.....you are done!
    BTW, I lost no media files or functioanlity of QT or itunes when done.

    Also, read my last post here

    ok and did you use a full system scan or a smart system scan? thanks, this may work!
  • Don Time Level 2 Level 2 (250 points)
    I just checked and actually it doesn't offer me a choice. It just says start scan. Wondering if we are using the same version.
    Mine is Ad-Aware SE Build 1.06r1.
    In any event, I'm sure it was full because it scanned about 150,000 files...at least.

    ok, well I am using Ad-Aware SE if that helps but I will try full and see what that does. This in no way will mess up my computer will it?

    As I said, I had it quarantine all including cookies (there were lots) so some auto-sign in functions no longer worked and I had to maunally put in passwords again when when I went to these sites.
    Other than that I had no ill effects or wierdness at all after. In fact my pc ran and loaded a heck of a lot fater than it has in a long time. I've used/opened all of my programs since to be sure.
    Of course I can't make guarantees, but just saying what happened to me.
    Really I don't think you should worry.
    You gotta let us know if it worked for you!
    Go on....hit the button!

    ok before I "hit the button", what do I do after I delete all that stuff? Let me know and this problem will be "solved"
