Using Control panel doesn't remove Ad-Aware


S

I have been successful in removing other software using my Control Panel, but
nothing happens when clicking on Remove button for Ad-Aware. There is not any
version listed. Any recommendations on removal?

install a FREE program called Revo Uninstaller
http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html>

This program cleans out all registry items that the uninstall program
leave behind.

Just DON'T allow the computer to reboot if the uninstall portion of Revo
asks if you want to reboot now or later.

Select later and allow Revo to finish searching for orphan registry entries.

Reboot after Revo finishes.

Are you comfortable working in the registry?

Many programs include uninstall programs, most register that with the
control panel application for add/remove, but some don't. Some have it
as a menu item (start menu). Still others won't give you any indication
at all. If you search the registry for "uninstallstring" without the
quotes, you can find information as to the path (and switches) to the
uninstaller for that item.

What you really should do, is ask their support people how to do it.

I know this program, and it usually uninstalls cleanly. Something must
have gone wrong.

Try re-installing Ad-Aware, then uninstalling it.

I doubt this is a security admin issue. You would probably have a
better chance of getting an informed answer if you asked Lavasoft. They
have a user forum for users of their free product.
