An update 01R211 was available this morning but failed to download - progress bar stops at about 1% or 3%. I aborted and then found that the reference file was corrupted and had to do a repair via Add/Remove progams. Has anyone managed to install the new update?

Yes thanks.

Did it just know, went in fine, thanks for the reminder and the warning. j.

Had to do a complete re-install before the update would download. All OK now - many thanks for your replies.

updated with no problems here, so thanks for the 'heads up'

I can't get it at all. Every attempt stops. Reference file is corrupt. Have re-installed four times. Will try again later. Looks like it only affect some of us. I wonder why though.

My first couple of attempts at re-installing did not solve the problem. I was finally successful by uninstalling Ad-aware in Add/Remove programs, and then deleting the Lavasoft folder in the 'program files' folder before re-installing.

Still can't get it. I have now tried three machines with no joy. Any idea what's going on.
All I've got now is three corrupt reference files. I think I'll give up until Tuesday.

Thanks for the reminder, updated no real problems. Perhaps a bit slower than is usual.

Sorry, should have added I did just what you did, and went through the registry and got rid of what was left. I see what happens next week.
