The problem is NTL. Anybody with an NTL connection trying to update Ad-aware can't until 2-3 days after the updates are made available. This sometimes results in missing updates when they are issued close together. It also applies to Spybot most of the time for me.
I have to disconnect the cable modem and update with a dial-up connection with another provider.
I tried updating manually but this doesn't seem to work either while connected to NTL.
We know. Explain how Lavasoft post an update on their web site and why it's not available with an NTL connection until 2-3 days later. Plus I can get the update as soon as it is available, using another ISP.
Just checking - is this really NTL's fault? I ask because I have seen a number of these NTL threads on this subject lately and being an NTL customer, I too was having problems updating Ad-aware. However, I belatedly realised it was because Ad-aware no longer supports Ad-ware Personal (which I had been using until 2 days ago) and we should all download and install the new Ad-aware SE, which incidentally found a load more cr** that the old version didn't.
