Noncritical objects (was AdAwareScriptsStillNotWorkingForMe)

Yesterday I used AdAware as your scripts permit me to do, and have one 

Upon completion of the scan, I pressed control N and was able to tab to the 
scan summary tab, right arrow to critical objects, press control M for mark 
all, and OK to finish.  But then I thought, well, what if I *wanted* to also 
access the negligible objects and remove them, too?  It seemed I might have 
to perform the scan all over again, then try right arrowing one more time to 
see if it brought me to something about negligible objects, then press 
control m to mark all, again.

am I misunderstanding?  Before your fix, when I was making do with just 
getting to the list of all found objects and using the context menu to 
select all and remove all, I suppose I was removing both critical and 
negligible objects, and so far as I know,with no ill result to my computer.

Can you explain how to manage all this properly using the scripts?  is the 
script intended to only give the user control over the critical objects 
list, an that's all you feel is necessary?

Thanks for explaining.

A couple of people recently said that they were still unable to access the 
Critical objects tab with the PC cursor with the AdAware scripts. I have 
made some modifications that hopefully will get it to work for you. Anyone 
who has this problem can download the updated 281k file packaged with the 
installer. Let me know whether or not you get it to work, or if you hear any 
error messages. The direct download link is:
