  1. I'm technically challenged, and need help, please. I started out using SE, but a year or so ago, I downloaded AA 2007 because I had heard it was better, and that SE would be dropped sometime in the future. Right off the bat, AA2007 would not work, or didn't seem to be working, so I continued using the old SE version. But, when SE was officially dropped, I decided it was time to figure out 2007, if that was possible for a technically challenged guy like me. This time, I started reading the Help section, and discovered that 2007 would not work if there was another AA version operating on my computer. Still, I was reluctant to uninstall SE because 2007 had refused to work, and I didn't want to be left without anything going for me. However, I've about decided I need to do that . . . uninstall the old SE. Is there someone on the forum who can tell me if this is my main problem . . . if I uninstall the old SE, will AA 2007 begin working? I'm running Windows XP on an hp laptop with an 80 gig HD and a decent amount of RAM.
  2. Never mind. I pulled the old SE version of my external hard drive, put it in a new directory (folder), renamed it, resurrected it and put a shortcut on my desktop. Went to the Lavasoft site and downloaded new definitions, and went back to using the old version. I did that because it works. The new version --aa 2007 -- is too buggy . . . like a virgin on a date . . . doesn't want to do anything but sit there and look pretty. Sadly, I need a program that actually works.
  3. I posted this topic a day ago, and it was closed. Did I post it in the wrong place, or is it inappropriate to ask for help? I have a back-up hard drive on which I back up my entire computer every 15 days. I'm sure my old version of aa is still there. I'm sorely tempted to restore it and continue using it. This new version of aa2007 has been difficult to non-working since I installed it. Here is my post from yesterday. Will someone tell me what is wrong with it. -------------------- I installed AA2007 a couple of days ago, and started getting this message when I try to removed detected risks: Ad Aware 2007 An Error Has Occured Cleaning, unable to remove file Suggested Action 0 Will be removed after you restart your computer Whe I click Finish, I get this message: There are unhandled objects, do you still want to finish? The first time or two that I ran smart scan, it removed these items. (See two attachments, please I'm using Windows XP Home on a year old HP Notebook with double processors. I'm really not very happy with this new version. The old SE worked like a charm. Had few bells and whistle and few settings to twiddle with. If I could get it back, I would.
