    Default Lavasoft Ad-Aware 2008

    Having a problem with this...

    I've had Ad-Aware SE installed for ages with no problems, but for various reasons hadn't updated it in almost a year so when I tried to update the database it told me to upgrade to Ad-Aware 2008, also a free download.

    Downloaded with no problem, but got about 80% of the way through installation and I get an error message saying I don't have enough priviledges to continue.

    I could understand that but I'm logged in with the only profile I have, which is the Admin one...

    Any suggestions from people who know more than me?

    I'm running XP SP2 on a prehistoric desktop if it makes any odds...

    TIA

    had this on a computer the other day, I had to do the following

    1.un-install Ad-aware
    2.reboot computer
    3.download and install Ad-aware from web
    4.download any updates

    if you have spy-bot S&D installed or an older version of AVG the install will prompt U to say it might not work properly but so far no problems.

    Ah.. Never thought to uninstall the old version first, just assumed the update would take care of that. I'll try that first and see how I go. Cheers
