Ad-aware update problem

  obbit 12:52 12 Jun 2004

Hi everyone. I notice there is another update dated 12.6.04. I didn't get yesterdays 11.6.04.

I check every day for updates. I have just clicked to download O1R317 but I get the message No updates available!!

How do you download direct from lava soft? How do you install the direct download update?

it may have become corrupt, i had that for some time and started getting suspicious so i unin/reinstalled and found 68 items might be worth a try for you.

i just thought I'll have a go at downloading manually.

When i unzipped 01R316 I clicked to replace exsisting ref file and it went back to 01R300!!

So i uninstalled adaware altogether and downloaded from scratch. Now I have ref file 01R298!!!!!!!

I give up the whole program is rubbish. I thought it was ok once but they seem to have gone off the boil.

Anyone else having problems?

No problems here.

How do they do it?

I just click on auto updates, 01R315 available.

click to download. It downloaded 01R317.

I am seriously thinking of uninstalling Ad-aware.

I just registered on the lavasoft forum.

registration was successful.

It not let me open a new subject due to an error.

As i say I am thinking of uninstalling it.

please check your adaware build. is it 6.181?

If not, you need to Dl the latest version to get the latest update:

From the Adaware Site:

""Latest reference file : 01R317 12.06.2004

Please Note Build 181 is now available! This download is for use with build 181 and higher only. Support is no longer available for previous builds and reference files.""

sorry: To check, open Adaware, and click the i icon on the top right. A new window will open to tell you the build.

I'll see if things improve with the next release of Adaware as 6.0.181 doesn't update sometimes.
