Hello. First off, I am extremely anxious to learn, but WAY behind the curve when it comes to computers. Forgive any seemingly obvious questions, or any inadvertant omissions as I try to learn. My computer has been acting up for sometime now. Hubbys take is, "at least it's working" and doesn't want me touching anything. I want a computer that works WELL. I am terrified of trying to fix it, but it is necessary.
I am using Windows XP (with service pack 2 if that matters) and IE 6.
I am trying to start at the beginning and fix MY bleeping computer. The "Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis log" instructed me to download AdAware SE 2007 and update it. The download gave me to options- either repair or uninstall. I chose to repair. Download seemed successful. Upon attempting update, I recieved the following message headed "Lavasoft Update Manager 126.96.36.199: LSUpdateManager.exe - Unable to Locate Compnent" : This application has failed to start because Update.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem. I do not know how to reinstall application. Could someone walk me through this please?
