    1.  I've finally gone thru all the fixes, and checker now installs, but I'm having the same problem as above.  I've followed all the advice.  When I press "start checking", I get the error message.  If I just minimize it to the tray, before or after "start checking", it closes and shows in the tray.  Does that mean it is now operating?  And why the error message?

    2.  Is FileChecker an adjunct to Adaware Checker or a replacement?

    I'm so confused

    If you do not already have the latest version of Ad-Aware Checker (v1.0.1) download it from http://www.wilderssecurity.com/aawchecker.html

    That should fix your problem.

    FileChecker is an extension of Ad-Aware Checker in that you can add any files, and it can save your "watch-list" to load automatically on startup.

    Thanks for the help.  I d/l'd the Visual Basic 6.0 file from your link and then tried to install v1.0.1 again, but I received a different error this time:

    COMDLG32.OCX ...not currently registered.

    I tried to follow the instructions above: I d/l'd the .cab file for that and "extracted" comdlg32.ocx from temp internet files to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.  That's where I'm stuck.  I do not see a .inf file to "install"...

    Frankly I'm lost and feeling really dumb...  Can you pls explain (in layman's terms) exactly what I need to do now to get Ad-aware Checker 1.0.1 installed?

    Thanks again!

    If you extracted the file to windows\system, then enter the following into your "Run" dialog box in the Start Menu: "Regsvr32 comdlg32.ocx" . That should fix your problem.

    Thank you so much! run dialog worked, I had entered an incorrect file extension earlier.

    After d/l'ing Visual Basic 6 and running MSVBVM60.DLL and COMDLG32.OCX, it still needed MSSTDFMT.DLL.  I downloaded and ran it under run command and the program now works.

    I appreciate your replies and help!

    Now I have the program (v1.0.1) running in my system tray.  Thanks again for both the help AND the program!

    Best regards.
