Tried to run a system scan on ad aware and it stops scanning at a CLSID file, my computer is running really slow and a lot of progs (registry mechanic, internet explorer, winzip, add remove programs) are not working at all amongst others.
Ive ran various programmes to try and fix the problem, spybot, adaware away, hijack this all with no change, im truly stumped I did find the 'all in one telecom' dialer which has been removed, but the performance is no better and the programs wont work, I run avg on a regular basis and i am using zone alarm as my firewall, i thought i was protected, but obviously not, can anyone please help me, i dont want to do a full system restart!! :tazz: ;)

Hello and Welcome

There are a number of options we can use in this situation. Firstly, please make sure you have the latest definition file: SE1R51 21.06.2005

We highly suggest doing a Disk Defragmentation and follow it with a thorough Check or Scan Disk, depending upon your version of Windows.

You could try scanning in: Safe mode

Another option is to try a command line:
1. Click "Start" > select "Run" > type the text shown in bold below (including the quotation marks and with the same spacing as shown)

"C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Personal\Ad-Aware.exe" +procnuke

Click OK.

Please note that the path above is of the default installion location for Ad-aware SE, if this is different, please adjust it to the location that you have installed it to.

2. When the scan has completed, select Next.
3. In the Scanning Results window, select the "Scan Summary" tab.
4. Check the box next to each "target family" you wish to remove.
5. Click next, Click OK.

If you still have a problem, cancel BEFORE the scan reaches the point of stalling -- say after 20 objects are detected. Then click cancel and click on the logfile. Remove any objects you choose and rescan. Again stop the scan before it reaches the point of stalling and remove any additional objects. Then try a full scan without stopping it.

Please let us know how you make out and which option worked.

All the best

Andy
