Ad-Aware 2007 not shown in Add or Remove Programs

Recommended Posts

;) Have installed Ad-Aware 2007 (free) v7.0.2.5 on Windows XP Pro SP-2. Platform is Sony VAIO (VGC-RB43) with 2 MB of memory and 100+GB storage.

 

Why isn't the Ad-Aware software listed in the software inventory under 'Add or Remove Programs'? The are no entries for Ad-Aware, Lavasoft or any combination thereof.

 

Product installed without issue and performs as advertised except for the fact that I had to manually configure Norton Firewall to allow updates. Interesting note...Norton scan did not find Ad-Aware when I was troubleshooting update problem - I'm pretty sure that Norton starts with the installed programs table when it searches for internet capable programs. This might explain some of the other problems associated with Ad-Aware updates I see posted here!

Hi Jerry,

 

Not sure what's going on there, but yes, Ad-Aware 2007 should show up in the Add/Remove Progarms.

 

When you go to Start>All Program and look under "Lavasoft" - click on Ad-Aware 2007 (do you see the uninstaller there?)

Just to be sure on the Norton side of things - what Norton product and version is installed on this computer?

From that info we can make sure all's right with your Norton install as well.
