Help! Can't remove lavasoft/ad-aware from my computer.
I've been trying to get rid of lavasoft from my computer (windows 7) for awhile, but can't seem to figure it out. I have used revo uninstaller and advanced uninstaller pro to uninstall ad-aware, which it claims it has. However, I can still find it in my program files folder and can't seem to delete it. Furthermore, whenever I right click on a link, an option for "scan with ad-aware" always pops up. How can I get rid of it?

Hi Cheeseball,

Unfortunately none of the suggestions worked. I couldn't even locate "unregaaw.exe" to try and do a manual uninstall.
