Getting rid of Secure Search in Ad-Aware 10 Posted March 17, 2013 · Report reply Hi Cecilia, Sorry for that. The Lavasoft logo is confusing because it makes the forum look like something formally connected with the company. As to your questions, I did everything according to instructions, including turning off the browser first. Using adwcleaner actually cleaned my system for a while, and then the Lavasoft Search came up again, which means that malware is installed somewhere in the system, that makes that happen. Short of suing Lavasoft I have tried everything else I could think of or was suggested in the web.
