Re: What is aawservice.exe, how to disable it
This workaround has solved the problem for me in Windows XP:
- Open the Services Management Console (Click Start, Run, type in "services.msc" without the quotes, click OK).
- Find "Ad-Aware 2007 Service" on the list and double-click it.
- For the Startup Type, choose "Manual". Click OK and close the Services window.
The program aawservices.exe will no longer start at Windows startup, but will auto-load as needed whenever you run Ad-Aware 2007.
It will remain running after you close Ad-Aware 2007, but you can safely kill it from the Windows Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del, Processes tab).
Worked for me, let me know how it works for you. Even you Vista-infected lot.
Don't talk unless you can improve the silence.
