AdWatch hypersensitive?

Hi all,

My AdWatch is a little hypersensitive to certain things and not to others. For example, if I'm reading the BBC news website and click on the "Today's Papers" bit it will attempt to open it up in a new window. AdWatch stops this and I don't know how to get it to be not so sensitive. But then there are occassions when I click on a link whic opens up in a new window, and AdWatch is fine with that.

Any ideas?

Hello h2whoa!
Try this:

1. Open Ad-aware
2. Settings (the gear-wheel)
3. Tweaks
4. Open the Ad-watch menu
5. Turn off "Block pop-ups aggressively" (Red X)

I think that will help,

Good Luck!
