unable to locate Ad-Watch Driver for Ad-Aware 9.6

for unloading the particular module, when viruses and malwares are detected, i supposed ad- watch to do the job, so i have a version of 9.6 installed in my Pc. i am having windows 7operating system. i wanted installation of driver for ad- watch. i am unable to find the driver as Windows tells me to find it at the time of starting of my computer. cant find the Ad-Watch driver, as i didn't made another installation and checked in my add and remove programs. i checked everywhere whether it had an installation in C drive, searched , but didn't found, as i also don't know whether it has correctly installed or not. so please suggest me things to make a clear thing for me of proper installation.

Re: unable to locate Ad-Watch Driver for Ad-Aware 9.6

yes definitely, i can have your problem solved as i can say that, adware does the every work further supporting the antivirus in behalf. make sure of your system that you made a proper installation of it or not, is that you will find yourself in ad- Watch icon in red. if you are able to see the icon in red, you are working well with your ad- watch and you will find your driver installed.

if you found yourself with your installed of Ad-watch and done with the working well, you will not have a problem at all. but if still problem persists, i think Windows will tell for looking for a driver for unknown hardware. i think this will create the problem as you have upgraded or something related to the file. after having an installation of Version 9.6 there will occur some kind of problem but, i can say that some wrong installation of the specific version is the reason for this problem.

i think the antivirus is encountering some problem, so you are not able to see yourself with the Ad- Watch working or not. so i can say here that there might be problem with your installation copy, and the solution to this will stand as, after having a clean installation of a fresh copy of that particular antivirus, you can come across some type of solution.

Re: unable to locate Ad-Watch Driver for Ad-Aware 9.6

seems that the driver are having a install in your system and you are not having a notice on it. you will find some hint whether it will work or not in the C drive where all programs are found there. try to have search on this topic, you will find something or the other. you can find similar searches in add or remove programs. i don't have an idea about that the ad -watch subsists in the antivirus or having a another copy of that. so you will find that the antivirus program having a install in the add or remove programs will be existing, but if that haves an another copy i cant find it out.

you will find the application in the tray icons of your system, or in the settings of the antivirus itself. have look for the icon and most probably you will find it red in color. so if you are finding something like this do tell me. also i can say here that if there is any detection of malware or something it does not function properly.

Re: unable to locate Ad-Watch Driver for Ad-Aware 9.6

i am not getting with it. you told for detection of something but i want to say that it didn't found anything malicious or suspicious threat. the windows is saying that it's looking for a driver for unknown hardware. and this appears at the turning of my computer.

Re: unable to locate Ad-Watch Driver for Ad-Aware 9.6

it really seems that about your mentioning of driver for unknown hardware, there is no intention or relation with your Ad- Ware antivirus. unknown hardware is something different to antivirus and closely relates with hardware peripherals. as antivirus something part of software and doesn't relates it , you can have it solved by Device Manager. also see to it that whether a connected hardware device is attached to your system. also see to it that there is a connection with pen drive stating that problem. also the relation stands wit h some sound and network problems.

Re: unable to locate Ad-Watch Driver for Ad-Aware 9.6

the final advise i can give is by complete removal of Ad-Aware using How to uninstall Ad-Aware 9.x, and then after this you can have a re- install of it later, and you will be with the solution of checking whether the driver is installed. disable it afterwards, lastly you should make an installation of it again.

Re: unable to locate Ad-Watch Driver for Ad-Aware 9.6

i want to say in addition to this, that in the options menu, you will be able to change the action taken by Ad-Watch. pop-up blocking capabilities are been provide with the Ad-Watch. i can say that if you want to configure blocking tracking cookies, you can use Ad-Aware SE Plus along with Ad-Aware SE Professional. to do this you should make sure for "Block tracking coockies, you will find this option available in options screen. the need to this enable to block tracking cookies before you try to enter on your system.
