    tomteeth, I believe many Wilders members (myself included) have uninstalled Ad-Aware due to the program not keeping up with current threats, so your best bet might be to post your issue in their FORUM if you need fast help.

    Your screen capture shows quite a lot of open software operating in the background and that could interfere with the installation process as well. Here's a pinned post about their Install Guide for Ad-Aware 2008 from their forum.

    I was having trouble with the forum, it stated I was not registered, when In fact I register a couple of years ago atleast.
    Anyway, I think you guys are right, but what is a good alternative? Thanks

    Firebytes beat me to it and yes, these 2 are the ones. They are updated daily and both will handle today's threats!
    Do follow the Ad-Aware uninstall instructions on the post I gave you.
