"Error 1920- Service 'aawservice' failed to start

I had to do a system recovery on my Compaq desktop (XP Home). I've downloaded Adaware again but the install fails - "Error 1920 Service 'aawservice' failed to start. verify that you have sufficient privileges to start the system services."

Also I'm now getting inundated with popup windows which I never had before. Any ideas how I can cure this please?

Thanks buteman - that forum helped to resolve the issue. PC still got several outstanding problems but I'll create new posts for those and treat this as resolved. Help greatly appreciated.
