    Ad-Aware 2007 command-line mode.

    According to the help files and the features list for Ad-Aware 2007 I ought to be able to run Lavasoft Ad-Aware from the command line, specifically in full scan mode without the GUI.
    The attached batch file appears to run without errors, but I don't see AdAware burning up CPU or disk cycles in Task Manager.
    I see Ad-Aware in task manager, but it appears to be sitting silently, perhaps monitoring browser activity.

    Has anyone here produced and run a simple batch file mode of Ad-Aware 12007?
    <pre>REM AdAware.bat
    C:Program FilesLavasoftAd-Aware 2007Ad-Aware2007.exe /Full /Silent
    REM End of AdAware.bat</pre>

    Re: Ad-Aware 2007 command-line mode.

    I'm not sure, but I think adding
    <code>/Stat scanstats.txt</code>
    may add some logging.

    Might be worth a try?

    (Or what happens if you don't have the 'silent' key?

    >/Stat scanstats.txt
    Leif, thanks for the nudge.
    Adding a PAUSE statement in the batch file did wonders. For one thing, it reminded me to put quotes around the path!
    Updated batch file attached.
