I have 2 different Lavasoft programs

Recommended Posts

Dell Dimension desktop pc, Windows xp.

In my add/delete programs part of control panel, I have 2 different LavaSoft programs

A. Ad-aware S E Personal

B. Ad-aware 2007

 

I am cleaning up and making space. Can anyone tell me which one is current and/or which one to delete??

The icon on my desktop says it is ad-aware 2007. Does that mean that it is the current one being used?

 

thx for any help. Swellmel

Swellmel, that is nothing unusual. Are running FREE, PLUS or PRO? If it is FREE I suggest you remove both and download a fresh copy of AAW 2008 from Lavasoft home page. I also suggest you do a thorough cleanup of your PC to remove all leftover files. That way you will be able to do a clean install. Follow the links I have posted for cleaning up.

You can download a fresh copy from this link (the free one serves all versions).

I am running a smart scan now and it seems fine. thank you all for your kind assisstance. It is very valuable, especially to an old codger who is not real puter literate. thx and please be well.

That is fine. I am no spring chicken either but cut my teeth on valve main frame computers and punch cards a long time ago. ;)
