I reloaded my operating system after my computer was hit with viruses and was sent out to be cleaned three times in the last month because Zone Alarm shut down. I am replacing the firewall and other components, and wanted to use Ad Aware for my spyware program.

I used it a few days before reinstalling my operating system for the third time in a month

Unfortunately, Ad Aware will not install I don't understand. I had my system restored after a

I did look and find a Lavasoft folder exists on my

Can someone tell me how to find Ad Aware registry items and system folder items to delete so that I can restart my system, install Ad Aware, and if it works well, buy it? I cannot buy it if it will not install, and that is where I am at this time. I simply need to know components to delete from the system files and if there is something in the registry to delete. It is not installed on my system, but When I try to install Ad Aware I get a message "Verify that you have
> sufficient privileges to start system services" and it will not allow me to install it.
