Since so many have been helpful to me, I wanted to give back what I could to the community.

After installing ad-aware, the help file and update automatically run. I could not find anywhere the switches to disable these, so I managed a work around. If this can save someone else time, wonderfull!.

First, download the utility pskill (freeware) from the following:

http://www.sysintern...re/pskill.shtml

Then put the pskill.exe in whatever folder you are running your install from (for me it was the "TCGDiagnosticsApps" folder.

The commands look like this:

ECHO.
ECHO Installing Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.05
ECHO Please wait...
start /wait %systemdrive%\TCGDiagnosticsApps\aawsepersonal.exe /SILENT
start /wait %systemdrive%\TCGDiagnosticsApps\pskill.exe hh.exe
start /wait %systemdrive%\TCGDiagnosticsApps\pskill.exe ad-aware.exe


The end result is a completely silent install of ad-aware. Hope this helps someone.

:-)

REG ADD %KEY%\000 /V 2 /D "TASKKILL /F /IM Ad-Aware.exe"
REG ADD %KEY%\000 /V 3 /D "TASKKILL /F /IM hh.exe"

Exactly!

I also needed something a little more generically viable since I will be using this in many environment as part of an install process for a bunch of different diagnostics apps.

PSKill works on NT3.5, NT4.0, 2K, and all flavors of XP. Which, in my humble, and very limited knowledge, is a better situation than Taskkill allows for.

But thanks for the script info for task

As a side note, does anyone know of a good utility for killing processes in 9x?

Found a new (freeware) Process killing application that is compatible with: Win9X, WinME, NT, 2000 and XP. It's called Procrecon. It can be found at:

http://www.webchitec...n/download.html


Using it, the above example of ad-aware's help menu and application termination afte r asilent install would like like:

ECHO.
ECHO Installing Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.05
ECHO Please wait...
start /wait %systemdrive%\X\aawsepersonal.exe /SILENT
start /wait %systemdrive%\X\ProcRecon.exe /t "Ad-Aware SE Personal"
start /wait %systemdrive%\X\ProcRecon.exe /t "Ad-Aware SE Personal edition"

X = the location of your install script.

Doesn't this release need a serial to be entered at installation time like the Pro version?

Nope. The SE personal 1.5 version is the free version you can get from anywhere.

Well some thing that could be done is to edit my pro build I just released to work with the PE version.

Just post it to that thread once done...and don't forget to tag your nick in as author :)

Guys, do you happen to know how to default the Ad-aware program to NOT automatically run the helpfile, update, and system scan after install?

I'm using my program/script to kill these apps after the install but it's a pain and creates extra work that shouldn't have to be there.

IF anyone knows a way to have them turned off by default that would be a GREAT help.

Thanks for the info. The problem isn't the "work" as much as the part of the unknown time before as-aware opens. Ad-aware.exe only opens AFTER the downloaded update installs. So, on some slower machines or machines with slower internet connections, the ad-aware.exe files doesn't open until AFTER the kill command has executed. I THOUGHT that the /wait command made it not execute the next line until AFTER the previous line had ran.

Is there a way to insure that the kill lines don't run until ad-aware.exe has launched?

The help and download now box appear, whether you have a net connection or not.
I pause for 10secs, and this is sufficient to open them both beofre being killed.

Or, in the case of Ad-Aware SE Personal, just create an SFX Rar file of the lavasoft directory in Program Files and copy it back over. And if you like, create the shortcuts on the desktop and in the Start menu. I do this for 1.05 and it works flawlessly every time.
