Question can't remove adaware 2007

For some unknown reason my adaware 2007 will not allow me to uninstall it.
I get a message that says:
Need to locate installation package
in a folder so that I can install adaware 2007.
If it is already installed on my system why do I have to follow these instructions to uninstall it? I have no clue as to how to do this.
Please help an old man that is just so so computer literate.

From their support forum. Cheers...

I am unable to uninstall my Ad-Aware SE. I receive a message saying, "Canít find Install.log."

There are several alternatives you can use to uninstall Ad-Aware SE:

* Click "Uninstall Ad-Aware" in the Lavasoft folder of your Start menu.
* If you are unable to do that, open your control panel, click "Add/remove programs," and locate Ad-Aware SE.
* Another method to uninstall is to locate and double-click the file "unwise.exe" (the .exe may not be shown). You should be able to find this file in C:\program files\lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE [Personal/Plus/Professional]\.

If the above alternatives do not work, or you get a message saying, "Canít find Install.log," you will need to manually uninstall the software. To do this:

* Click on "My Computer" and locate your Lavasoft Ad-Aware SE folder (C:\program files\lavasoft\ad-aware).
* Run the file "unregaaw.exe".
* Delete the entire Ad-Aware SE folder.
* Delete your Lavasoft Ad-Aware SE link in your Start menu (if present).
* Delete the Ad-Aware SE icon (s) from your desktop (if present).
* Navigate to "C:\Documents and Settings\[User Name] \Application Data\Lavasoft" and delete the entire Lavasoft folder.
* Empty your trash bin.
* Reboot your computer.
