Ad-Aware 2007: Integrate into Windows Explorer Right-Click Menu

Posted August 3, 2007 by Rob Rogers in Windows

By default, Ad-Aware is not integrated into the Windows Explorer context menu. Enabling this feature makes it a snap to scan a file or folder for spyware by simply right-clicking it and selecting Scan with Ad-Aware 2007 from the menu. Here’s how to integrate Ad-Aware 2007 into Windows Explorer:


1. Open Ad-Aware 2007.

2. Click Settings.

3. Select the UI tab.

4. In the Miscellaneous section, select Integrate into Windows Explorer so that the red X changes to a green checkmark.

5. Click the Save button.

Ad-Aware will now be available in the Windows Explorer context menu when you right-click a file or folder.
