Software makers will typically allow reinstalls on your hard drive without problems. Is the hard drive brand new? If you "re-installed" your hard drive, do you mean you replaced it or just moved it?

You may have to completely uninstall the previous installation before beginning a new installation. If this does not work, please provide more information regarding your troubleshooting steps already taken.

    when you purchased ADAware you entered an email address and chose a password. Enter those details here to contact Lavasoft, and ask a new download.

    If you bought disk version use same as above and ask a replacement disk.

    Alternatively you can email Lavasoft Sales here ( sales@lavasoft.com ), and ask a replacement disk, they should send it straight away.

Drive C shows low disc space but is only half full


This could be caused by a virus, or you could simply have a small HDD with a newer version of your OS. Certainly I recommend running a full scan with the free version of Ad-Aware Anti-Virus from Ad Aware Free Antivirus and Antispyware by Lavasoft Protection from... to start with. Also, if you have a smaller hard drive, something around 40GB or less, newer versions of the Windows OS will not consider the percentage of the drive's storage space in use, but only the raw amount of free space available on said drive.

Another possibility involves the paging file and its size, something which would be a concern on any modern OS. If your paging file, or virtual memory allocation, is too large, you can receive warnings about low disk space because even when it is not in use that storage space is counted as "in use" by your OS.

Finally, in general these types of problems can result from not performing routine maintenance on your HDD and its partition(s) and file system(s). Running a file-system integrity scan and a thorough defragmentation operation on your drive is a good idea just on principle alone.

AD-Aware SE antispy autoupdater and LSP Plugin


I still use this excellent free Ad-bot removal software from Lavasoft with the separate LSP Plugin. The auto-update function within the program doesn't work with either the normal or proxy settings...

76d700b.jpg

So I wrote my own download all you need HERE its a self-exe RAR file and has all you need plus the LSP Explorer Plug for backing up IE7

The latest available defintion files is from March 2009 2009SE1R345.30.03.2009.defs takes about 10 mins to download when you restart AdAware you will see the updated files

af5bab1.jpg

I use the LSP Plugin to backup the registry settings with respect to WinSock2 and in the system32 folder for IE this is a best way to do this you need to install the main program in order use this plugin then the correct keys will be saved if your Winsock ever becomes corrupted.

48430b1.jpg

Don't : download the IE Guard from HERE from Lavasoft it only works on the later versions of Ad-Aware

Note : this will conflict with McAfee Security Centre installed with the ISP so if you want to use Ad-Aware and have SKY don't bother.

I installed system mechanic professional and hit the drive scrubber button and wiped out my hard drive completely. i tried to install widows vista and i it won't allow it to install. i get a file error...


In that case it affects the file system of your hard drive that's why it fails the windows vista installation. In order to fix it you need to delete the partition of your hard drive and create a new one using a partition manager software.
If you can connect your hard drive into another computer you can perform a disk partition using the Disk Management (In Windows XP: Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Storage > Disk Management)

To help you with the procedure on "How to use Disk Management."

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000

Using Disk Management, after creating a partition in your drive, proceed to formatting.

System restore cant restore computer to earlier times and ad-aware freezes mid scan


Go to a friends computer and search for "Trinity Rescue CD version 3.3", try to get build 321 or greater. Burn the ISO file you download on to a CD blank and then set the computer to boot from CD (This setting should be in the BIOS settings). Boot with the Trinity Rescue CD you just created and make sure the computer is plugged into a known good network connection (not a modem connection but a cable or DSL connection) chose item number 6 (I think) on the menu. Item #6 should be "Virus scan non-interactive" Be aware that you only have 10 seconds to choose the item you want from the menu before Trinity Rescue CD boots. use the arrow keys on your keyboard to move up and down the menu. After you choose Virus scan non-interactive, the computer will reach out to the internet and update it's virus checkers and scan your computer for viruses and rootkits. This might take a while. If you have a larger hard drive (80GB or larger) try this before you go to bed and let the Virus scan run all night. When it is done scanning (it will scan your hard drive with 5 different virus scanners) it will have a command prompt (DOS) type screen type "exit" and remove the CD and reboot your computer using the hard drive and THEN try to run Lavasoft ad-aware or Spybot Search and Destroy.

I brought ca anti-virus plus anti-spyware 2008 and the product don't work it won't allow me to register my software thet keep asking me for a licenes key which i don't have it's also asking me to buy...


This is only an idea, but if you aren't on dial-up you can download 2 very good FREE programs. Go to download.com and enter AVG Free into search, Download the file, it's about 46MB. Save it to your temp folder (right click Start/explore/ (C) / Windows / Temp make a new folder in Temp called "software' or something. Then in download.com search for ad-aware free (it's by lavasoft) Save also to (C)/windows/temp/software.

Now install. When installing AVG select advanced instead of standard when you get to the box that gives the choice, when you get to where it confirms if you want to download and install the free AVG toolbar, untick (don't install it) Select USE FREE when you get to the registration box, and also don't register your details (unless you want emails from them)
Update it but don't run a scan yet.

Ad-aware by Lavasoft. Install it. Make sure the correct plug in's are ticked or not re what email software you use when you get to that box. Don't register this one either.

When they are both installed go to the desktop, you will have two shortcut icons for Ad-aware, keep the one that looks like a green world and delete the one that looks like a sheild with a beetle on it.

Open Lavasoft and Update it.
Open AVG and Update it.

Restart your computer in Safe mode (usually by pressing F8 at startup) Run a Full Scan from Ad-aware. Select and delete Critical and Privacy Spyware when scan completes.

Run an AVG full computer scan. Delete or remove anthing found.

Restart in normal Windows. From now on keep them updated and run at the minimum weekly scans (Smart Scans in Ad-aware) These two programs will cover virus and spyware very well, you can delete or disable anything else.

Hope this helps, I have used these two free products for over 5 years with no problems. Make sure your Microsoft Updates are current.

Computer gets stuck loading win xp


Hiya ya, It sound to me you could be courripted with spy ware or a virus i will recommend using Ad-Aware SE Personal install this and run it! - you can find Ad-Aware SE Personal from this direct download link - http://software-files.download.com/sd/99nfDnO0WNfR5Wh8fucNAQf7N59p48yGyOq1e_XM8HIX6d0PeT0xd36uOth8kTloWoNAp4GOAh-Z2YdX8nf9afcV5NPn3Uc0/software/10639408/10045910/3/aawsepersonal.exe?lop=link&ptype=3000&ontid=8022&siteId=4&edId=3&pid=10639408&psid=10045910 This is a very good program i have been using Ad-Aware now for around 2 years and it's super. However if you have a virus you can use Avg_free - If you are already using norton or somthing like that REMOVE IT because personally Nortons Crap" Its not recommended - to remove your anti-virus go to Startmenu Settings/control panel /Add or remove Programs, Select the anti-virus program and press remove. After you done that! close all windows and open internet explorer with this link (explorer will open automaticlly) - http://free3.grisoft.cz/softw/70free/setup/avg75free_446a991.exe install that and run it on a virus check from the Avg test centre - If they don't work Then i would recommend a full deep clean for windows Xp But before you do that if you can Back-up any files that you want to keep as you need to Fully formatt C:/ drive (this is normally the drive that windows runs on) If you would need help at doing this On the telephone i can be contacted on * 0906 179 0906 (Call cost £1.50p/minute) @ all times. In the meantime take care And keep it hardcore = HTID = Hardcore till i die!
