    Default C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Personal\Skins

    Hi All,

    Today I was scanning with my KAV persenal pro and everything went fine. As always, even today kaspersky dint scan this file "c:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Personal\Skins\Ad-Aware SE default.ask" i dont suspect this file but my kav says its password protected and asks me to enter password which was given during installation of this file. I am sure ad-aware wont ask for any password during installation. Wondering what is this.

    No password only if u install the personal version. Pro version has some security limitations but i guess its not the question of passwords, but simply serial numbers.
    For the skins folder, it seems to be just a password protected archive. Nothing to worry about. If u want ur scans to be clean, simply put the folder in the ignore list or
    Start Scan->Custom Scan-> Uncheck 'scan within archives'
    Savvy!
    Dont ever involve in a dispute with a fool. The viewers might not be able to distinguish between the two

    Yups done with no worries. One small question, why wud those files have passwords and which applications use those file. If ad-aware does, y wud it require password?
