I've been unable to run Ad-Aware, I suspect due to a virus. Everytime I try to run the program, a window opens telling me I need a CD in the drive. I even tried reinstalling the program. Any thoughts?

Welcome.

:tazz:

Please open Ad-aware SE 1.06r1

Click the gear (Settings) on the main screen of Ad-aware.

This should open the settings menu.

Please then click on the Scanning tab.

Then click: Select drives and folders to scan

Please make sure you have the correct drives selected.

Hope this helps.


;)

window opens that says there is no CD in the drive. No matter what I do--cancel, proceed, etc., this window pops up again and again.

Have you tried placing a CD in the CD drive to stop the error message?

If not please do then try to edit your settings.
