Thanks VoG for your help. Have looked at Internet security & discovered that somehow various Lavasoft sites had been added to my Restricted Sites list, whilst at the same time they were stil listed in the trusted sites list. Have removed these entries from Restricted Sites, but am still unable to access Lavasoft sites. Have recently installed Windows Live Messenger & associated Toolbar, could this have any effect.

I have noticed that the connection to the update site is very slow recently and I have have a couple of timeouts. Seems OK today, though.

I've been having trouble connecting to Lavasoft since early January.Is taking about 45 seconds to a minute to connect.Used to be about a couple of seconds.

Thank you for your comments. In my case it is not a case of slow speed, but inabilty to access at all. I have checked my Restricted & Trusted sites lists, and they appear noe to be in order, but still denied access. It may well be something peculiar to my computer, but I don't know where else to look for a solution. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Have you checked your firewall settings?

For what it's worth, I've just updated AdAware and scanned my system (it's a regular Sunday morning routine). Everything happened as usual. No problem with the program.
