  1. So I got a new computer and I am trying to install adaware 12 free but when I click the get activation key it brings me to the webpage where it asks me to download it again. Can anyone email me a key directly or pm me one please
  2. [quote name='casey_boy' post='113939' date='Dec 3 2009, 01:31 PM']Hi, Thank you for taking the time to post this workaround. I will add it to the current workarounds thread we have as it may well help lots of people. FYI, I imagine that your workaround would work no matter what the other folder name is. Also, did you ever try installing without the driver before changing the installation folder? Casey[/quote] When it gave me a choice I did both and it didn't work. (It would only give me the choice after running the windows installer cleaner that was linked to from one of the other threads) NOTE: I also tried reinstalling the windows installer. I can tell you the issue started when I installed the first time and when it told me I needed to restart right then I clicked cancel because I was in the middle of something. After that the problem existed until the work around I hope that helps.
  3. I just wanted to let everyone know that after getting this bug and trolling the forums for an answer only to see there was none I started playing around. I found a solution and its quite simple: -Run install -Select your language -Agree to the terms but instead of clicking continue select the customize install option. -Open your C drive and create the folder C:\adaware -then change the install directory to "C:\adaware\" and ALSO change the program folder to "adaware" -click next and do not select to install the driver -after install goto the C:\adaware\Ad-Aware\Drivers\ directory select your operating system (32 or 64 bit) right click lbd.inf and select install -a window pops up telling you to restart, do so... 2343 bug = squashed. (Obviously there is still a bug with the installer that needs to be tracked down and fixed by lavasoft but this is a work around) PS: if anyone wants to take the time to re-write this with pictures and what not feel free I just wanted to get the work around out there. Also I hope knowing this work around will help lavasoft figure out what is actually going wrong for so many customers .
