I was just wondering if there is any one best "Scan mode" for Ad-Aware SE. I usually just do the full system scan, but was wondering maybe selecting certain options would be even better, but I'm not about to start messing with those without a pro's opinion. Anyway, any info is appreciated. Thanks.

Most, but not all of the settings laid out in the second post in this thread are set by default. If you have more than one hard drive, for example, you need to tell Adaware to scan that drive if you want it to.
Otherwise, a full system scan is the best way to go, as Resolution has stated.
