Adaware/Lavasoft wont remove.

saturn51, Aug 3, 11:15am
My Adaware has decided not to run so i attempted to remove it and reinstall it. It refuses to do so. It starts the "wizard/set up" tool and sticks part way through. Is there any other way to remove it other than through the add/remove programmes feature in the control panel? Thanks.

'Revo Uninstaller'

that program is so 2005, its not worth using anymore

get hold of revo uninstaller if you cant remove it properly

And if that doesn't help try techguy forums - can't remember how I found them. Just google probably

Malwarebytes

Download and update.

malwarebytes is great for detecting malware

unfortunately the free version doesn't have real time protection, so you have to get infected 1st before it does its job

that's why i also install threatfire as their free version has real time protection and use malwarebytes to get a 2nd opinion
