    Had to replace the hardrive in my wife's computer so need to download AdAware Personal SE and Spybot Search & Destroy. I did a search to find links for each program but am skeptical about the sites. For example: I clicked on a link for Spybot Search and Destroy but a page opened up in Spyware Doctor for the download so I was skeptical about performing the download. The same occurred with Adaware Personal SE and different Adware sites appeared.

    #2 I did select one that appeared to be AdAware Personal and downloaded it to a folder however, when I attempted to execute the file I received the following message:
    C:downloads/aawsepersonal.exe is not a valid win32 application
    The file would not install.

    Can anyone provide me with valid links for each of the programs and also answer what the "not valid win32 application" means? Thanks

    The message usually means an incomplete download.

    Try www.majorgeeks.com for the software. The Lavasoft site links back to it, anyway.
