What other security software do you have now or ever had?
If uninstalled how was it removed?
I ask just to rule out any possible conflicts.  ???
Dell Inspiron, Win10x64--HP Envy Win10x64--Both systems Avast Free v17.9.2322, Comodo Firewall v8.2 w/D+, MalwareBytes v3.0, OpenDNS, Super Anti-Spyware, Spyware Blaster, MCShield, Unchecky, Vivaldi Browser and, various browser security tools.

Personally I would suggest MalwareBytes AntiMalware (MBAM) to replace both Spybot (past its best and has interfered with avast in the past, teatimer) and adaware.

It also depends on what version of adaware as doesn't one of them contain an antivirus module.

So I would cut out these two programs and use MBAM.
