Ad-Aware freezes on Temp/AAWTMP folder

Hello,

I have recently sought help in the Malware forum to clear my computer of spyware and malware. I encountered a problem using Ad-Aware.

Whenever I run a full system scan of Ad-Aware it freezes on the following folder

C:\DOCUME~1\Ramy\LOCALS~1\Temp\AAWTMP\C1867234\213D23\Ramy2

and will not complete the scan. I am able to run a smart system scan without difficulty, presumably because it does not scan this folder.

I have tried to delete the Temp\AAWTMP folder and even the Temp folder but every time I do this and run the Ad-Aware scan again, the folder rematerializes! I have tried deleting both in safe and normal mode, with and without rebooting, the result is the same.

Also of interest, within the Temp folder there is also a notepad file that reappears called 'jusched' with the following data in it:

Mon Jan 23 21:21:24 2006
:: nextSched=Sun Feb 19 22:00:00 2006
; sleeptime (sec=2335116, hours=648), actual sleep=2336373000 msecs

Mon Jan 23 21:21:24 2006
:: lastSchedTime= Thu Jan 19 22:00:00 2006
;


I have noticed that when I run the Ad-Aware smart scan there is an item with the same name as listed below

#:29 [jusched.exe]
FilePath : C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_06\bin\
ProcessID : 2152
ThreadCreationTime : 1-24-2006 2:11:22 AM
BasePriority : Normal

I am not sure if there is some connection. The person helping me in the Malware section recommended I come to the Applications forum to try and figure out how to resolve this problem so I can use the Ad-Aware full system scan. Below is a link to my previous post in the Malware forum if this will clarify things further.

I hope you can help resolve this issue.

Thank you in advance.

Thanks for your swift response.

I looked up the Ad-Aware page. They recommend Updating to the 1.06 version and then defragmenting the drive (which I will do in the next day). After that they recommend running Ad-Aware from Start>Run several times and stopping prematurely.

I do not have Norton anymore (I did before but it really slows things down far too much).

Will be in touch.
