  1. I tried to delete the lavasoft file with web companion in it, using the file explorer search there was no folder left with lavasoft name, it did not appear anymore in the control panel when I looked for it to uninstall it. Even after I rebooted my computer, when I launched firefox it would still automatically open a tab with adaware. What can I do to fix this issue?
  2. hi, i have been trying to get an activation code since yesterday but being unsuccessful, i'm here. My problem is that, i'm not receiving any registration key or any message in my email from Adaware nor any option to click when i don't receive such promissory activation key. i have checked spam/junk folders in my email but they are nowhere to be found, clicked resend email as much i could and tried restarting my PC hoping it might solve my problem, i even tried using many email ids but no.... please help if you could.
  3. I have created a program that makes a thing in a game easier (not cheating nor hacking), the problem is that it is detected as a virus and trojan, even tho it is an false positive you can see the project here: You can see here an scanning on the program is classified as a virus after it is compiled into an executable: scanning of the python file: scanning of the compiled file: I used Pyinstaller to compile the program. Aftermath: People think I am looking to infect them when it is classified as a virus. And one-time bad reputation all ways bad reputation compressed exe file: password: infected link:
  4. Is there a 'patch' available to enable me to run Lavasoft and Photoshop elements 15 on the same Windows 10 machine? I am unable to open PSE 15 as a Lavasoft dll file is stopping it opening. I have been advised on the Adobe forums that there is possibly a patch for this on Lavasoft site. Does anyone else know anything about this?
  5. I've recently downloaded a free trial of Ad-Aware Total Security 2014. My installation was going pretty smooth,but now it's stuck at-Publishing information. I've waited for more than an hour but still it doesn't seem to be continuing. Any solutions?
  6. I've downloaded Ad-Aware Free Antivirus recently, and installed it to do a scan of my computer, and then I wanted to remove it again.. I tried to uninstall it, but I have no uninstallation files anywhere, not in the start-menu folder, or in the program files folder itself.. Neither does the program show up on the add or remove programs list.. How do I remove the program again? Please help me ASAP, thanks up front. Dan
  7. Started a new job and the computer running XP was painfully slow. Ad-Aware has served me well for years so installed and ran it. This morning I try to load up the 5 years of archived emails from my predecessor and they will not load. I kept it both as a second profile in Outlook and backed it up as a standalone archive .pst file. Both are gone. I find no .pst files in the quarantine folder (C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware 11\Quarantine) and am at a complete loss on what to do next. If anyone has any suggestions please share them. This is a huge issue, and unfortunately he used POP3 so there is nothing online to pull from. If it matters, I have not reset my computer since Ad-Aware removed the files. At this point I'm nervous to do anything unnecessary in case it will make things worse or preclude me from trying something that might help. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
  8. this free version is a problem. I've tried twice to uninstall through add/remove programs and again via All progrmas/ad-aware/uninstall and receive message that software not installed. How do I get rid of it? the number 1-866-335-9467 for free support - the operator hung up on me after i said I had the free ad-aware software.
