Is there some kind of uninstaller/removal tool for Ad-Aware 2008?

The uninstaller seems unable to... well uninstall on this machine i'm working on...

If there was a tool that could remove it, it would save a lot of hassle.

Most advisors here recommend these uninstaller/cleaner apps:

I tried Revo Uninstaller, but it doesn't list it...

Any better ideas?

I'm surprised there isn't a removal tool...

Most other apps of this kind do...

It's a shame really.

What is the exact error you receive when trying to uninstall?
If you are a paying user (Plus/Pro License) you should visit the Lavasoft Support Centre.

If you need help to remove an infection:

Read this first. Follow ALL the steps in it. If you do not then you will just be asked to go away and do so.
Then post your HJT log (copy and paste, don't attach) into a NEW topic in the HJT Log Forum
Await advice from either a Volunteer Security Advisor or a member of Lavasoft staff.

If you see anyone other than a VSA or Lavasoft staff member giving advice in the HijackThis forum please PM a mod.

DO NOT POST HJT LOGS IN ANY FORUM OTHER THAN THE OFFICIAL HJT LOG FORUM. We will be unable to deal with them there and will just tell you to go to the right place.

Please do NOT bump HijackThis log posts, it won't help you receive help any faster - the VSAs look for posts with zero replies. If after one week you have not received a response please repost your log file in a NEW thread.
