Fully free and functional
Get it off the lavasoft site if you prefer

...and yes you should uninstall the SE version .. they are two entirely different programs will not update to the other

Then select "Uninstall..."

It is possible that installing the new version first will automatically detect the old version and perform an uninstall for you...worth a try.

If you are still watching this thread, can you tell me if I can delete "Ad-Watch" that was packaged with the Ad-Aware D/L. without affecting Ad-Aware its self?
