AdAware will not completely uninstall

Recommended Posts

I tried to uninstall AdAware, and I was thinking about reinstalling, however AdAware left files behind after uninstalling. Most troubling is the aaw7boot.log file, which even when manually deleting, re-installs itself every time at boot up, LIKE SOME KIND OF MALWARE. Does anyone know how to clean AdAware off a system? The uninstaller provided by AdAware seems to be more interested in getting me to keep the program than actually uninstalling it. This is one of the big reasons people hate Norton. By the way, although this was the free edition, I have purchased software from Lavasoft recently. Anyone?

Try using Revo Uninstaller (revouninstaller.com) set on the highest setting to remove Lavasoft/Ad-Aware. If that does not stop Ad-Aware's boot cleaner, I'd log into Lavasoft Customer Support (link in my signature) to ask them.
