This is an unsupported fix and it may not work 100% for you and it might not detect or remove all known spyware.

Ad-Aware 6.0 does not support Windows 95 and will not run under Windows 95, however there is a fix. Three additional dll files are needed to run Ad-Aware 6.0 under Windows 95:
MSVCRT.DLL, WS2_32.DLL and ws2help.dll
They can be downloaded from many places on the internet including here.
Place these three files in the Ad-Aware 6 directory (i.e.: C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-aware 6\). If these files are zipped (i.e.: ws2help.zip), unzip them before placing them in the Ad-Aware 6 directory.
Ad-Aware 6.0 should now run under Windows 95.

This is an unsupported fix and it may not work 100% for you and it might not detect or remove all known spyware.
