    Can't uninstall AD-Aware


    When I go to programs and try to uninstall...I get a pop-up window that says a reboot is required. When I log back in there is a progress bar saying it is configuring Ad Ware installer. Then lets me in explorer and does nothing.

    There doesn't seem to be an uninstall app. Lavasoft doen't list how to.

    Would not delete from directory. I manually deleted everything Ad-Aware from the registry.
