Ad-Aware 2007 Free Does Not Update

  User-6D608A94-4DD2-4950-88B7470B97BE89A8 21:51 23 Mar 2008

I have v7.2.0.6 installed but I can't persuade the program to download a new definitions update. The last update was 8th March. At start, the program tells me the definitions are out of date, and suggests running Web Update. When I click the Update buuton, a narrow box is shown saying "Getting information about updates", but there's no traffic shown on my internet connection and it just sits there. It says "Waiting..." in blue text above the News section.

Does anyone else have this feature?

Can you get the update manually (more as a test to see if your machine is failing to connect rather than just Adaware)?

i have just followed same process and donloaded updates successfully. XP Home SP3 firefox..

in cases like this uninstalling and reinstalling the prog is sometimes the only course of action,

Same version, same problem but I found that trying again after the first failed attempt did actually work, though there is nothing on the screen to show download progress until the update completed window.

(I use the blinking lights on my router to see if anything is actually happening.)

Is this version not Mine is and it updates fine!


Thanks to brundle for his <a href="click here">link</a>, but it appears that the batch file is no longer available.
I tried extracting core.aawdef to C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware 2007 but on opening the program it still thought the definitions were out of date.
However, <strong>this</strong> time, when I clicked the Update button updates were downloaded no problem.
Is this anything to do with core.aawdef being in the right place? It didn't exist before (I did a search to check).
