Just a follow on. Also ran AVG after Adaware and it showed a virus Proxy.7.BF - JS/IIIWill - this had arrived in an EMail I opened this am - it was a Zip file I scanned both before and after opening - teach me to be more carefull. It was a blank html page called "Price"

Thanks tweak'e for this important info. and the download site.
What would we do without you.

Do I need to uninstall my old version (6.181 -R336) to install this new version, or does it install over the top?

God bless,

If you download the new version, and while installing it detects an older version of Ad-Aware, it will ask if you want the older version uninstalled (and will do it for you!) or if you want to ignore it.

I just downloaded and installed. Thought I had the old version uninstalled, but the new version detected it and removed it for me in a few secs. Very nice.

It will leave the old Adaware 6 folder behind in \Program Files\Lavasoft after uninstalling, so you can delete it if you want to save about 780KB of space.

Done Terry. Thanks. I'll have a clean mean machine yet.
