    Lavasoft Adaware won't open on my Mum's laptop (Advent 7301, MS Vista). I've removed the programme via Control Panel. I've downloaded the latest free version and installed it. But this did not resolve the issue. The problem is it starts to start up but then also ways gives an error message as per attachment.

    tru using Revo to uninstall it .. THEN re-install and all should be well again.

    I personally wouldn't use adaware anyway, I would rather use the free versions of Malware Bytes and SUPERantispyware.

    Do you think it's better off not having Adaware then? Quite happy to follow advice. The same laptop does already have Malware Bytes and SUPERantispyware installed anyway.

    it would be my personal preference not to bother with adaware as it is not that useful, the choice is yours ultimately. But I think SAS and MBAM are MUCH better. ;)

    thanks dr.moriarty those two applications are also on the machine in question. I had just wondered if anyone knew why there was the problem with Lavasoft. I have it on my pc and it's never given me a problem.
