Hi wyatt,

Please download the attached file, Activation.zip, and save it e.g. on the desktop.
Double-click the downloaded file.
In the opened Explorer window is a folder called Activation.
Right-click the Activation folder and select Copy.

To be able to continue you need to be able to see all folders and you have to select to show hidden files, see http://www.bleepingc...tutorial62.html for a description.

Please, locate the folder C:\ProgramData\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware 11\.
Right-click the folder and select Paste.
The Activation folder should now be visible in the Ad-Aware 11 folder.

Please, check the path to the activation file, it have to be:
C:\ProgramData\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware 11\Activation\Activation.dat

Please, change the setting back to not show hidden files.

Restart the computer.

Is Ad-Aware activated now?

Delete the downloaded file, please.


Note!
The attached file is specific for this computer and will not activate Ad-Aware in another computer.

Please, check that this is the path to the Activation.dat file:

C:\ProgramData\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware 11\Activation\Activation.dat

 

I assume that it can only be used together with the last key used before creating the log files.

the path to the Activation.dat file is correct, and I have one key used that is what you gave me.
