How to Install and Run Ad-Aware

To install AdAware, double click on aawpersonal.exe and follow the on- screen instructions. When setup is finished, you will be asked if you’d like to perform a full system scan. Check the “Perform a full system scan” box and then click “Finish.

Ad-Aware will catch any other spyware that Spybot did not locate.

When Ad-Aware has finished scanning, it will show 2-3 different categories of problems. Checking every box will ensure that all the files will be quarantined. Then click Next to quarantine the files.

You will be brought back to the startup screen. To delete the quarantined files, click on “Open quarantine list”.

Click to highlight the name of the quarantine file collection and click “Delete”.

You have now successfully used Ad-Aware.
