Ad-Aware 2007...Need Help Removing It
by kaetheone - 3/16/08 9:17 AM
I can't get Ad-Aware 2007 to start, and I can't get it off of my computer. Help!
When I tried to run it after supposedly updating the definitions, I got the message "error 1814" and was told to see if someone else was using the program (no). When I tried to uninstall it--by going through the control panel, by going through my computer's "all programs" AND by simply deleting the files from the C-drive, I was informed that I'd made "error 1921: Service 'Ad-Aware 2007 Service (awwservice)' could not be stopped. Verify you have sufficient privileges to stop system services."
Hellooooo! It's MY BLASTED COMPUTER. I should think that would give me privileges enough.
Anyway, speaking of my computer, it's a Gateway M Series something or other (6023GP), running windows XP Professional...and it's slowed down like crazy since this happened. If anybody can help me get this piece of malware off of my computer, it would be GREATLY appreciated!
PS...Ad-Aware SE was a jewel, but this new version is hideous.
