Hi Iain s,

Which version of Ad-Aware are you trying to install?
Which Windows version?

Have you tried to right-click the installation file and select 'Run as administrator'?

Hi,

Ad-Aware 2008 is a very old version that Lavasoft is not supporting any more.

For unistallation you can try tool 2 on the page [url="http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?showtopic=24927"]http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?showtopic=24927[/url] or if that doesn't help tool 1.
