  1. Hi there, Sorry if I'm putting this in the wrong part of the forum but I'm tearing my hair out here and hoping somebody will know what is going on. I am trying to completely uninstall Ad-Aware, or more precisely I thought I already had months ago - but apparently not. In Security Center it says that I have Lavasoft Ad-Aware Live! Anti-virus protection up to date and scanning, which it shouldn't be given that, as I said, I uninstalled it ages ago. I've tried reinstalling the old version of Ad-Aware but it won't scan, the option is grayed out, uninstalling it doesn't clear up the Watch Live! problem and nor does installing the latest version of Ad-Aware, which also won't scan at all and also doesn't remove the setting in Security Center when uninstalled. I'm at a loss as to what else to try. I've run several registry cleaners, none find any problems relating to it and I'm loath to start digging around the registry without any guide as to what to look for. The problem this is causing is that I am now without any active virus scanner. If I try to install another, such as Avast or AVG, my PC immediately causes a Blue Screen of Death and I have to go into Safe Mode to uninstall it. It would appear, due to the BSOD error (No_More_IRP_Stack_Locations) that the system erroneously thinks there's another virus scanner running, which is presumably Watch Live. If anybody knows how to resolve this problem I would be extremely grateful!
  2. Hi, [i]As I NEVER seem to get any response from Lavasoft directly via email, I will post my question here on the forum:[/i] Namely, I received a "pop-up" message from my Ad-Aware Total Security stating: "Your Computer has been Scanned"! (It was not a Virus Scan) What does this mean then??! Is there anywhere I can get more info on this "scan"? Thanks!
