I have been trying to install ad-aware 2008 and when the install gets to the aawservice download an error screen comes up and says error 1920. The first time this happened a message said verify that you have administrator rights.

FWIW: I no longer suggest Ad-Aware 2008 for install, due to what I view as it's questionable utility now. Rather than that, I suggest Spybot S&D and SUPERAntispyware as a pretty good, complementary pair of malware-detection/removal programs.

From wikipedia: "...however, real-time protection and anti-virus protection are not included with this version. Real-time protection and other advanced features are available in the paid versions of Ad-Aware 2008."

I think that's important, along with the install/update problems that some users (including myself) had with this version.
