I am having grief. I tried a paid version last year and had more trouble getting support for it, than in the past when I had the free one. So when my paid version expired a few days ago, I decided to go back to free...... but I can't for some reason.
I opened adaware and it told me that my license had expired. So, I uninstalled the program by going through the control panel..add/remove programs (WinXP). I restarted the machine and went to download the new adaware free from download.com.
After it installed, the computer required a reboot...so I went ahead with that. Then after the reboot, I opened adaware.........and got the same old message..that my license had expired!
Sooo, I tried the whole uninstall thing again and did a complete shutdown and restart. Then I redownloaded the version 8.1 (2010) program...installed, rebooted. And up popped the message that my license had expired........Then, I read the advice in the section above about uninstalling and tried some of the suggestions. The only thing I didn't try was to get an earlier version. I downloaded adaware from tucows, download.com, and the lavasoft site.
I don't want the paid version anymore. How do I get the freeware again?
Thanks in advance for your help.
