Well I don't know much but I believe that when Ad-aware is scanning, Ad-aware is opening up those files that it's scanning to detect any spywares or malwares.  Since avast! Standard Shield detects and scan all files that are open, running, etc, avast! is scanning along with Ad-aware.  I might be mistaken but that's just my hypothesis.   ;D

Avast! Standard Shield again scans all files that are open, running, etc. I'm assuming that when Ad-aware was scanning a few files, avast! detected some of those files having Trojan viruses.   :)

Welcome to forums !

Of course... and it's not odd at all... That's why we have avast! resident shield. It works in the background and keeps you protected. If it's not there you wouldn't have a clue now that your system is infected...

hope this clears it a bit...

Cheers !
