Why on earth can't I get Ad-Aware 10 installed

Recommended Posts



I have now spent 2 hours trying to install the free version of Ad-Aware. First I used "Run" but later I just downloaded to desktop and "run as administrator". I have removed anything that remotely could be passed as an antivirus or antispyware program from my PC.. I have uninstalled Windows Security. Whatever I try I get the same message (see attached). I'm about to give up and it's a shame. I use Ad-Aware on my laptop and it works great.


My PC - Dell Workstation, Win 7 PRO 64-bit, ServicePack 1

Hi bkarlstrom (Karlström?)!


Which antivirus and antispyware programs have you uninstalled and have you used their special removal tools or only uninstalled them from Control Panel?

What do you mean with "Windows Security"?

Do you get the error message immediately or has the installation program of Ad-Aware displayed any information first?

Does the error message have a title (text in the top frame)?
