Ad-Aware won't run

Hi,

I can't seem to run Ad-Aware with this command line:
C:\Progra~1\AD-AWA~1\Ad-Aware.exe +nodefnotice +silent +update +procnuke +cskip

If I run it without the +silent switch it checks for downloads but does not start the scan.
If I run it without any switches it runs just fine.

I am running Ad-Aware SE Professional ver. 1.06r1 in XP Pro sp1

What are the correct command line settings to be most effective in identifying and removeing the most that Ad-Aware is capable of except for negligible items?

Thank you,

Docfxit

Thanks for the link to all the command line options. I can also see the command line options by putting a /? after the program. What I am interested in is the best combination to run with.

For me I can run the regular interface screen with no problem. I set up PC's for people that are PC illiterate.
They have a very hard time clicking on a link. Any link. Never mind following instructions that require multiple instructions to accomplish. I also setup PC's for people that are literate and don't have the time or don't see the importance of cleaning up PC's on a regular interval. Some people are literate and do see the importance and this will just make it easier for them. I am working on putting together a script that will run a bat file to clean temp files from lots of folders including the recycle bin, run Ad-Aware and run Spybot on a schedule. That way their system will run clean automatically without relying on anyone to clean it. They will all run in silent mode.

Thank you,
