    I've been using Ad-Aware 2007 for a few months and I want to uninstall
    it to get a new anti-spyware program that actually works and is not as
    resource intensive.
    But, Windows has made it hard for me....


    Some more info about my computer, version of ad aware, etc.

    Application Version: Ad-Aware 2007 from C|Net.com Link
    Operating System Version: Windows XP Home Edition SP2
    Computer Specifications: Dell Dimension 4300 / About 5 years old, has
    never has a problem until installing ad-aware 2007.

    Browser: Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer 7.0 (current
    system default) Installed
    Anti-Virus: McAfee Anti-Virus (came with my Comcast internet service)
    Other Anti-Spyware Software: None yet, until I solve this problem.

    Just out of curiosity what program are you thinking of replacing AdAware
    with? The one that actually works.

    I was thinking about Spybot Search & Destroy, people were saying good
    things about it.

    AdAware and SpyBot may have some overlap but they target two different
    problems: popup ads vs spyware. Many people use both and have a
    software firewall like ZoneAlarm installed too. If it were my system I
    would not uninstall AdAware.
