However, about 70% of the time, it will not begin scanning the computer in any of the 3 modes, and will tell me that something is already using Ad-Aware's system. The only fix I have so far come to find is that by utilizing Task Manager, if I stop both Ad-Aware's process and aawservice, which I'm assuming is part of Ad-Aware's system, at least 3 times, it will run.

Needless to say, this is a very inconvenient process, and any help whatsoever would be great.
Uninstall Ad-Aware, and use Spybot Search & Destroy it's is a far better application to use...
