Have you D/L any P2P (Peer 2 Peer) software and installed it recently?
I remember seeing in the Forum ( don't remember where) that a particular P2P Proggy was doing strange things to Ad-Aware to the point of deleting it or just rendering Ad-Aware useless.
O.K. I think I understand what is going on...
First, a question:
Is the Bar where the red arrow is on the image you posted running through all your Directories and Files on all your Drives when Ad-Aware is running/scanning???
If so, which I think it is. Then Ad-Aware is working just fine. All the ZEROS (0) is the count of how many SpyWare things Ad-Aware has found, ie... Processes, Reg Keys, Components, Files... anything that is part of a SpyWare Proggy. Since you show in the image you posted Six (6) running processes, then you have SIX (6) things going on there. The other items list ZERO (0), so there are none of those present.
When you click on the "CONTINUE" button what does the next window show? Is it a list of the SIX (6) Processes? If it is, then all is the way it should be.
after i click the continue button they say congratulations no spyware is found... ok anyway, just to add on, after i used spy bot search and destroy, it founded so many spyware. but ive been scanning repeatedly with ad aware to detect nothing at all. but nvm already, im now using spybot.
