For the past few weeks Ive had Blue Screen of Death (the DRIVER IRQL LESSER OR EQUAL one) and have been operating in Safe Mode for the time being until I got the time to actually fix it. Today Ive had the time and have been trying to fix it since about 2 this afternoon. I think the problem may be fixed with getting rid of Ad-Aware. If I log onto my computer but not in Safe Mode, 3 pop-ups come up, one about "protect.dll' and the second "uhufuyiwog.dll", both of which are dll's related to Ad-Aware. The 3rd says "autochk.dll" but I think that may be unrelated to it. Anyway, I have about 20 seconds in normal mode to uninstall Ad-Aware, and the last 10 seconds or so my laptop freezes. I thought I may be able to uninstall it when in Safe Mode, but to no avail. I also downloaded a program called "Perfert Uninstall" where you can "force' a program to uninstall. It went well until it came to the actual step of uninstalling where it said I had to register and pay money in order to continue.
So getting to my question, is there anyway I can uninstall Ad-Aware while in Safe Mode? Ive been doing and trying a lot of other things but all have been dead ends. My final option seems to be restarting my whole system, which Im not too hot on doing. Any help is greatly appreciated =)
