    Does anyone know if it's possible to automate scanning and updating of Lavasoft AdAware Personal using Windows Task Manager?

    I found the following command line on a now defunct AdAware forum, but it doesn't seem to work:

    "C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Personal\Ad-Aware.exe" /full -mru +cskip +auto +remove:3 +update

    you mean task scheduler ?

    did you try "C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Personal\Ad-Aware.exe +A"

    that won't set an automatic update, but at least should set an automatic scan.

    that's a beginning :)

    I am still checking DC but according to a knowledgeable Ad-aware user in this post on another board it does not appear possible with some switches :doubt:

    Having taken a look inside the executable you can use the below command line switch to show a list of available command line parameters and their applicable versions.

    "C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Personal\Ad-Aware.exe" /help

    LOL I'm not so sure how knowledgeable that answer was, Bubba, as it doesn't make all that much sense to me now. However, I thank you for the kind words.

    Lavasoft removed the capability of automating the scan in the Personal version of Ad-Aware when the SE upgrade took place.
