AdAware scripts, different problem

I've installed and compiled the scripts, an the same for the upgrade of 
AdAware SE 1.06.  Either I'm doing something wrong or there's a problem with 
the script.  I wonder if you can tell from this description:
I'm using Jaws 6.0, Windows XP Home Edition.

All I want to do is run AdAware in the simplest way, where you do the scan 
(either the Smart Scan or, at least to begin with, the full scan, and then 
mark and delete all critical objects.  That was the way I used Version 1.05, 
and it satisfied me.

I read your excellent HTML instructions and then referred back to them when 
I had trouble, and attempted the process over again.  but still no luck. 
Here's what happens.
I successfully performed the Web Update, and then went on to do a scan.  At 
the end of the scan, I expected to find myself on the Scan Results page, 
where the instructions said I'd be on the Scan Summary button.  I wasn't. 
Rather, Jaws said "Scan Results Help button."

I tabbed around to see if I could land on the Scan Summary button in order 
to go to the next step, but it wouldn't appear for me.  I switched to the 
Jaws cursor just to explore and make sure that the Scan Summary button was 
on this display, and it was, but I couldn't reach it in the way the 
instructions describe.

I tabbed around, but just came to a Help button and a couple of other 
things, but not the Scan Summary button.  I tried to right arrow and left 
arrow to see if I could reach the Critical Objects tab, but mostly Jaws was 
silent when I pressed the arrow keys, no matter which direction or how many 
times I pressed.

Just to see what would happen, I pressed Control M anyway, but got a message 
that I needed to be on the Critical Objects position or the harmless objects 
position, you know the one I mean.  Negligible?  Innocuous?

Anyway, so I pressed Control N to see what message I'd get then, and heard 
that I hadn't deleted any of the critical objects and asking me if I wanted 
to proceed or cancel.

I tried the whole thing twice, rereading the instructions in between to be 
sure I was following the steps properly.  What could I be doing wrong?  I 
compiled the scripts again, just to be sure, right while I was in the open 
program, so I didn't even have to worry about finding them to compile.

I hope I've described my experience clearly.  Any ideas?  Thanks.
