    Because of new reference-file file name, Ad-Aware Checker will be updated soon to cover the new version (with a checkbox for 5.71 and below, and 5.8 and above).

    A small correction to the release notice


    *Please uninstall all previous installed versions before installing  
    this update.

    Should say

    *Please uninstall all previous installed Ad-aware versions before installing  this update.

    For anyone having problems un-installing their previous version of AA, this was posted on the LS site:

    "To everybody who have problems uninstalling the recent version:

    To manually uninstall AAW, please do the following:

    1.Delete the entire AAW folder
    2.Delete these registry keys:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Lavasoft\AD-Aware

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Ad-aware 5.71 ".

    Note: The second key listed may not be there if you have the version of AA with the un-install problem - if so, just delete the first one.

    I'm moving this post to Privacy Software. Pete
