    Hi. I just downloaded the free version of AdAware to try and rid my
    system of spyware. I went through all the steps in the instructions, it
    seems to scan fine (coming up with over 300 files that seem to need
    deletion), but after I view the files, and select them all for deletion,
    when I click the button to proceed, it freezes up everytime, and I can't
    delete them. Anyone have any expericne with this software? Thanks.

    I use it regularly, in tandem with Spybot; but haven't experienced your
    problem.

    Clean your system out *before* using Ad-Aware.
