Removing ad-aware 2007

Recommended Posts

If you're using Vista Ad-aware2007 does not show in the processes listed in the task manager, so it cannot be stopped and the error message keeps appearing. Ad-aware cannot be stopped, attempting to remove it by using Vista's Uninstall doesn't work either.

 

I eventually tried MikeB's method of removing it, having been sceptical, and it works. I wish I'd tried it sooner.

 

It's here http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?showtopic=22485

 

Type msconfig into the start box, go to start up and unclick Adaware.

Restart the computer then go to Control Panel > Programmes > AdAware > Remove

 

A warning message appears, you need to allow Lavasoft access.

Thanks for this post! I have been trying to stop the crash notices I've been getting every 30 seconds for days! Even my company's tekkies couldn't figure out how to remove it! I tried, and it started to delete..and froze at 45% and stayed there for-ev-er! Will try your fix and see if that helps!

Happy New Year!
