when trying to update adaware I get "error retrieving update", I have clicked on configure and under proxy settings I have ticked the box 'use HTTP proxy', the address shown is 127.0.0.1 port 8080, going back and trying again gets me the same error message, after a search on these pages I downloaded the latest version from click here but still get the same problem, do I need to change the proxy address? can anyone help please, all help gratefully accepted

I would untick the use proxy button.

127.0.0.1 is a loopback address to your PC.

thanks VoG™ but when I open adaware, the box is unticked and that's where I 1st get the message, I just ticked the box to see if I could overcome the error message, I can still run the program, I just can't update it

I would un-install your Ad-Aware, Control Panel>Add/Remove programs, and then re-install it click here

If you are still using Adaware SE it is no longer supported and will not update.
You will need to download the new Adaware 2007
