I have this problem it's driving me mad! i fix it then a couple of days later it removes it's self again.
The problem is there is no imagepath in the registry to point to the services file so it wont start and the only way to fix this is to manually add it to the registry.
[code]Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
this will add the imagepath ("C:\program files\lavasoft\ad-aware\aawservice.exe") to the registry so the D*mn program starts just save the code in to a text file and save it as whatever.reg and double click it.
I'm running windows XP Pro SP3 never had any problems till this new Version 8 service version please fix this thank you.
[b]also please to meet you all.[/b]
