    I had the second most recent version of Ad-Aware and it was awesome. But it become corrupt and after trying everything else, I had to uninstall it and then I downloaded the new version from lavasoft's website.

    As with most awesome programs, subsequent versions are often worse...

    I downloaded the Free version of Ad-aware 8.1.4, and I've noticed that not only is the GUI retarded and completely deviates from having a normal menu (it has random buttons all over the place), but it also scans at startup (annoying, wastes resources) and I can't figure out how to disable it.

    In the user documentation, it shows a "scheduling" option where one of the options is "scan at startup," but because I have the "free" version and not the "pro" version, I cannot access the scheduling menu (it's greyed out).

    So does anyone know if there is a way to disable scanning at startup for the free version of Ad-Aware 8.1.4?

    I googled it but I only got instructions for previous versions, not this new version.
