Cannot Remove AdAware Completely

Question

I have attempted to remove AdAware but after all visible folders and files have been removed if I Right Click on a Drive a window pops up for AdAware Installer.

 

http://downloadnada.lavasoft.com/update/5354/834/ is the path in that window. What I can't find is were this pop up is being resourced from.

 

All I want is to remove all traces of Adaware from my computer. Lavasoft Adaware operates almost like a hijacker.

Hi,

 

Ad-Aware shall be uninstalled from Control Panel's list of installed programs, deleting folders and files will leave a lot of registry posts. In your case it's a registry entry that Windows uses when showing the context menu that is the cause of your problem.

 

You can use the tool CCleaner to remove that registry entry. Please, see the description on https://www.cnet.com/how-to/clean-up-your-windows-right-click-menu-with-ccleaner/ . Be careful when installing CCleaner and deselect all optional items or use the portable zip file instead of the installation program.
