Hi,

I am using adaware 6 181 and has the 20/9/03 update: 221

The new update 222 (26/9/03)will not update.

When I click the update Icon it says new ref, file.

Ok, and one it says finsihed on screen I click finsish, but thew old ref. is still insalled.

Is there a reason for this?

Regards,
Gareth

This happened a few weeks ago with a previous update. In the end I gave up and waited for the next one. There was a thread about it at the time, but it may take some finding now.

Updated it at lunch-time...no prob...

Just got this update without problem.
But last time there seemed to be a 50/50 split between those who could and those who couldn't.

If it's any consolation I often have this problem!

I know that there is a new ref file but when I try to get it ad-aware tells me that there are no updated components avialable (although I know there should be from postings made here)!

I usually manage to get it eventually although sometimes I have to go to click here and up date it manually (I have just checked this site and they haven't got it posted there yet).

That is not my problem....


The problem is it knows there is a new update, attempts to download it and when it says compleate it does not install the new ref. I just downloaded.

It just shows up as the old ref. file is installed.

It should show:

BUT IT does not, it only displays the one I already posted, even after sucessful update?

Downloaded the reflist manually, but I would still like to know why I have had this problem.
