Are you familiar with booting into "Safe Mode"? If so, try the following:
Lets start here and see if we can get you up and running with the least amount of trouble. If this doesn't work, I still have several tricks up my sleeve, but you should always start with the simplest process to recover your system.
- Restart your computer and immediately upon turning it on, press (tap) the "F8"key. You may have to do it a couple of times but if the keyboard beeps at you, you should have done it right. This initiates the "Safe Mode" startup process.
- You will see a black screen with several menu choices. Choose "Safe Mode" and press enter.
- Your computer will boot to the Safe Mode desktop. Click "Yes" if it asks you if you want to continue.
- Once in Safe Mode, you should be able to uninstall Ad Aware. If you can not, follow the same procedure for booting into Safe Mode, except that when the menu choices appear, choose "Last Known Good"
On a personal note - I do NOT recommend the use of Lavasoft Ad Aware for anything. I stopped using it when they stopped supporting Ad Aware SE. I had too many problems with it - including system seizures.
