I have ad-watch set to run when windows starts, but 50% of the time ad-watch crashes on start up.

If I manually run as-watch there is not a problem.

Any ideas?

I will try to get someone more experienced to assist you.

This very same problem happens to me, although its more like 80-100% of the time.
I have AVG antivirus and ZoneAlarms. Both are also configured to launch at startup. When I click on the report error, microsoft tells me that its a problem with ad-watch and that they're aware of it and yada yada. Anyone have a fix or is this happeneing to everyone?

Well, this isn't a fix, but it works. If you set ad-watch to NOT boot up on starup, and then drag the icon of ad-watch into your startup folder of your start menu, it should work. Though it won't miniminze automatically to the tray, at least it opens up right away so i remember to use spyware protection.

Tried that and still crashes on startup (although I do still have minimise on startup selected).

1) Is it a know problem?

2) When do you anticipate the new build?
