Error 1722 Can't Uninstall Ad-Aware 1.06
Operating system: Windows XP

When I try to install Ad-Aware 2007, I get a "Error 1722" and discontinues the installation. I found another post here dealing with the same problem. One post directed me to this site "," but it did not fix the problem.

Any help out there would be appreciated.

Thank you, twocat

Are you trying to install or uninstall?? The title of your post confuses me.

skinnwhiteboy If you are having the same problem as twocat then you are going to have to start your own thread. It is to difficult keeping track of two people in the same thread with the same or similar problems.

For twocat please do the following:

Welcome to TSG....

To download HJTsetup.exe from TrendSecure To Download HijackThis go to the following at the File Repository
Click on the link below to Download HijackThis Self Installer:

Save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
A security expert with a gold shield to the right of their name should take a look at your log - please be patient.
I still use my Osborne 01 with a 300 Baud modem all the time.

I was always taught to respect my elders, but it keeps getting harder to find one.

Heaven goes by favorites, If it didn't then your dog would get in first. Amen.

I am not having any problems. This is what I wrote:

I was commenting on his statement.

Thank you, I am trying to install the Ad-Aware 2007 and uninstalling Ad-Aware SE 1.06, which is several years old. However, I have since downloaded another version SE which eliminated the uninstall problem.

I am still having problems with the installation of Ad-Aware 2007 because, no matter how many adjustments I seem to make, I keep getting the "Error 1722."

Thanks again, twocat

To Ozrom1e:

I have been to the trendsecure site you suggested and downloaded "Download HijackThis Installer and Executable." What I get is a Main Menu for everything but what you suggest. There are no "next" buttons to click on.

The three links at are:

Download HijackThis Installer
Download HijackThis Zip
Download HijackThis Executable

Let me know what I can do to fix this. Thanks, twocat

Hey ozrom1e,

I read the rest of your instructions and realized I was in the right place but apparently the software has been reconfigured. I went ahead and did a "file scan" and saved it to notepad. If I interpret your message correctly, you asked me to post the log file to this reply (my next reply). So here it is:

If this is not what you meant please let me know. And thanks again for your help. twocat
