Error starting AdAware 2007

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have been using AdAware for many years with good results.


Just recently I had a problem with AdAware 2007, version... 6 on Microsoft XP SP2. I was unable to correct it so I downloaded the next revision... 7.


Just 2% before finishing I get an error about access violation to memory, so it never really finishes the install. I do not have those error messages but I do have the message when I start the program up and I believe it is very similar to the access violation message I get at the end of download.


Wish I could figure out how to paste it but it reads as follows...


An Error has occured in Ad-Aware 2007!






Access violation at address 7E433287 in module 'User32.dll'. Read of address 00000111


Send this information to Lavasoft Support Team.... AdAware now terminates.


When I try to enter that data on the support page, it requires me to register and give my AdAware product s/n. But since I cannot start the program I am unable to give the s/n. Thus I am posting to this forum.


I am unable to run or even reload the AdAware program. I have removed it a couple times and reloaded with the same results.


How can I repair the program so that I can keep the protection I have been used to over several years?
