I had uninstalled AdAware SE recently because it was always bogging down on me.
So I was perusing my folders and deleted any folders associated with Lavasoft..I found some in folders for "other users"..
So I reinstalled AdAware SE and this time when it asked for access rights I chose my name only rather than the "Anyone who uses this computer" choice.
Now it works without a single problem. Not even the so called "experts" on Lavasofts forum mentioned anything like this...I had to figure it out...oh well.
