I downloaded the new installer that you recommended. I restarted my CPU, and then I tried to run the uninstaller for AAW2007 and the same error message came up again and the uninstallation rolled back. I also shut down the aawservice.exe in task manager before I tried to uninstall it. Should I also be shuting down my anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall on the uninstallation too? If so how do I do that? I have Zonealarm, AVG 7.5 free and Spysweeper. All of them are updated to there newest current files, except AVG 7.5 because I am having some trouble with updating to the new AVG free 8.0 as well. But I won't get into that in here.
Luckly, I have the AAW2007 install file saved on a flash drive and then I just re-installed it again. Everything looked good at first but now I get another error message when I try to do an update. I says something like SSL webupdate failed....solution run webupdate. I don't know how to fix that either. I have a log file, and a jpeg of the error messages. I will upload them if it works.
Thanks for the help.
This is crucial!!
Are you shutting down Zonealarm, AVG 7.5 free and Spysweeper before you download adaware 2007 or 2008? Also are you leaving them shutdown while you install Adaware?
Zone alarm is absolutely known for interfering with the install. Zonealarm's engine is from Kaspersky and is known to intefere with the install process.
I believe some people have had avg intefere.
As for spysweeper

The description in this program is exactly why we ask you to shut them down. These programs can stop adaware from updating also. Shut them all down at the same time and keep all of them down and then try to update. If it starts to update try an uninstall again.
The point is with any of these turned on it can corrupt the download.
Here in a few days I will be posting a guide in all the forums, it will be much clearer and layed out in a step by step procedure. It will also explain why we ask the things we do.
