Ad-aware (please read and don't hang up)

In one of my posts recently, I was moaning about not being able to update my Ad-aware (build 162) someone replied, gaz I think, and said just to re-download a new Ad-aware program and this will update me. My question is, do I have to un-install my present A/W program first, or will the new download up-date this automatically. Or have I got this totaly wrong!!!!

Best to uninstall the old version, but it is possible to install the new one over it.

I've never had a problem installing over the existing version.

Like stuarti, I have never had a problem installing over the old version.

One more question: Is it better to download from the Lavasoft site, or use one of the third party sites ( etc.) or doesn't it matter??

It doesn't matter which site you d/l from,its available from several sources to ensure the files are quickly d/l'ed.

As Chegs ® says it doesn't matter.

What does is that you check regularly for updates.

It's also a good idea to add SpywareBlaster and S and D 1.2 to complete a high level of protection.
