Problem with Ad-aware

I've had Ad-aware 2007 pro edition for a long time. A couple hours ago while doing a scan I decided to turn on Ad-watch, which I've never used before.

Instantly, several of my favorite sites quit working ( I get time-out errors or the page just hangs and does nothing).

I have friends using these sites so I know they are working just fine.

I then turned Ad-watch off. It did not fix it. I deleted cookies and temp files. Still didn't fix it. I rebooted and it did not work. I restored computer to 2 days ago. Still did not work.

I use Firefox, but opened IE to try, still does not work.

This (Ad-Ware/Ad-Watch) was the absolute only thing I touched.

Any ideas?

You may want to try the Free Anti-Virus programs in my signature. I as well suggest posting a log in the HijackThis section of the forum.

Well thanks but I have Nod32 antivirus which is an awesome AV. I only use adaware to occasionally clean things up quickly.
I should have never turned ad-watch on in the first place, just trying to get it to stop working after it has been turned off. I will try the hijackthis option though, thanks.
