So I should uninstall the akismet? Should I not reinstall the ad mod since it is working?

You won't be able to reinstall it, because if you attempt it the install will fail since the modifications have already been made.

My advice to you, as I've already said, is to start COMPLETELY FRESH from the Large Upgrade package which will remove every mod. Then, and only then, install the mods you want.

You mean install the latest version of SMF? Will my alien nation theme work on it? Will akismet work on it?

I don't know, I've never used or tested either. That said, the answer is "Probably, on both counts".

Since the ad mod is working, how can I get akismet to work? I don't have all kinds of free time to make major page changes.

Without knowing what the problem with Akismet is, and knowing full well that it has been a problem for a while, I can't really help.

The mod is unsupported by even its author now.

Several. Try searching the mod site for 'spam'.

I personally use Stop Spammer.

Is it listed as installed? If so, uninstall it, THEN delete it.
