After running a scan using AdAware (free version) on my W98 pc I get a Scan Summary table listing 196 detected objects. But when I try to quaarantine them nothing happens! I check all the objects and press the quarantine button ... but nothing happens. I tried checking just one object but am unable to send even one to the quarantine bin.

Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks.

Uninstall adaware, run disc clean up, reboot

Download and install adaware

http://www.filehippo...nload_ad-aware/

Run it before you update it, see what it does, update it then run it

If no change

Please go here:

Malware Removal Guide

Run all the programmes as advised then post a current Hijack This Log in a new topic in the Malware Forum

For the purpose of accurate malware analysis, Hijack This Logs are only dealt with in the Malware Forum. Posting them anywhere else will result in a delayed response

If you are unable to run any of the programmes, ask for advice in the Malware Forum

Keith: Thank you very much.

"Uninstall adaware, run disc clean up, reboot" --Please clarify "disc clean up." Do you mean Scan Disk?

Click start then programmes, accessories, system tools and it should be at the top, or you can run maintenance wizard, which will take longer
