My Ad-Aware grinds to a halt when it gets to between 2500 & 3000 files. It remains in scan mode & the program itself has not locked up but it will not scan any further. This has started to happen just in the last week or so.

I have just done an uninstall but the issue remains.

Anyone else with the same problem? Any ideas?

Many thanks.

Try leaving it a bit longer, it may just be checking some very big files.

The problem appears to be Webroot Spysweeper. This software had a program update a week or so ago & that is when the issue began. If anyone else has the same problem shutdown Spysweeper then restart your Ad-Aware scan which will then work fully.
