ken,
I'll go over them in a second.

AdAware is very very obnoxious.

Google for "uninstall AdAware"

If you do not find a tool for such then let me know.

Oh yes,
while uninstalling-- disconnect from the internet.

You may find that you need to uninstall your browser and then fresh install the browser to get rid of AdAware.
Be sure that there is an extenrsion/plugin/add-on for AdAware in your browser.

update your firefox.
click on downarrow in ff icon at very top, left | Help | About Firefox

you can go back into Scheduled Tasks, select the AdAware entry, and this time click on the Delete button.

You can also delete AdAware entries from Statup via CCleaner

CCleaner | Tools | Startup | Windows tab | select the AdAware entries | Delete button

Otherwise, things look clean.

System running well now?

ken,
Hope the ill-health is behind you. Those relapses are no fun. I've finally managed to shake a summer cold.

all healthy now thx. unfortunately cannot say the same about this pc! i turned it on in the morning and boot was about 15mins. (still haven't had a chance to remove ad-aware entirely but this cannot be the cause...?) i shutdown, went to uni for two hours and came home to turn on again. no good. i came home six hours later and still not on. while i sit on my net book it just now decides to boot up!
