Ad-aware 1.04 hangs

  VoG II 18:22 06 Sep 2004

Downloaded, installed, then updated definitions file. Tried running it but it hangs repeatedly at


Had to CTRL+ALT+DEL to exit.

Uninstalled, fresh download, reinstalled - same problem.

Uninstalled, downloaded and installed 1.03 from Updated definitions. Runs just fine.

Anybody else had this?

VoG™, as per Bugzee, I've just ran a full system scan with the v1.04 and it didn't hang. Have you updated to v1.04?

Erm, yes, as per title.

1.04 hangs, 1.03 (with the same definitions file) doesn't.

"Have you updated to v1.04?".

The clue was in your thread title.

Spot the dork!

I tried to update the 1.03 I have installed alrerady. It told me there was a new version and directed me to Lavasoft. On the site it told me that the latest version was 1.03 August 9. There was also a small window saying there was an update to that current version.

I updated my version 1.03 and again tried the Check for updates and after much delay was told there were none.

Where's 1.04 gone to?

At second attempt managed to download what APPEARS to be 1.04, although in the Initialisation Status box it states 'Definition File SE1R7 060904 loaded'. Have just completed a scan, no hitches, but, in common with others, a shade slower.

At second attempt managed to load what appears to be 1.04. In the Initialisation Status box I have the message 'Definition File SE1R7 060904 loaded'. Carried out a scan, no hitches. All a bit puzzling!

  lucky1 19:36 06 Sep 2004 can say that again!!

Yep, I'm hanging at exactly the same point. Have now uninstalled and will try new download and reinstall later.
