Archived from groups: alt>comp>virus (more info?)

I've been running ADAWARE from a bat every night. I've just installed
ADAWARE SE and can't get it running from my bat. What is the secret?
I used "C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-aware 6\Ad-aware.exe" c:\ +a +1
which ran fine. I've tried ""C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE
Personal\Ad-Aware.exe" /smart +auto" and the old options and can't get
it running.
Thanks for your help

I think only in pay versions you can use the command line options.

For goodness sake, look at the date on Pete's post!

That's three years old and AdAware 6 has been out of date almost that long.

For a list of command line options, open a command prompt and enter the complete path to Ad-Aware.exe and type this command:

Ad-Aware.exe /?

and you will get the entire list of command line options.
However, you will find that those options are only for the Plus or Pro versions of AdAware. You cannot use command line options with the FREE version.

I've recently purchased AdAware 2007, Plus version.

Here are the command line parameters for it:

With Respect, this info is NOT for those who do not know DOS or how to use the command line with correct syntax.

Using Command Line Parameters

Ad-Aware 2007 can be operated without using the graphical user interface (GUI). It can be controlled by using command line parameters. UNC paths are supported.
>Ad-Aware2007.exe /Smart /Silent /Cookies
Ad-Aware will run in the background (without the GUI) and perform a Smart Scan with cookie scan turned on.
Scanning Parameters
Performs a Full Scan. If set, this parameter will override all other scanning parameters, except the optional Full Scan settings: /Cookie /ADS and /MRU.
Performs a Smart Scan. If set, this parameter will override all other scan parameters except the optional Smart Scan settings: /Cookie /ADS and /MRU, and /Full, which takes precedence over /Smart.
