Need latest version of Ad aware personal edition

  Doire_Bhoy 09:37 17 Jan 2006

The ad aware i download on many sites is 280 days out of date.

The pc im working on cant access the internet (might be due to spyware, so i cant get updates

Is there any sites which have an up-to-date version where i dont have to download any updates?

Lavasoft Ad-Aware SE Personal Edition 1.06 click here

The update click here

Unzip the file into the AdAware directory, then run AdAware.

i think the idea is for you to uninstall your old out of date version, then install the newly downloaded one. which should be pretty much up to date, then run adaware and see if you can sort out your problems.

you could also check your system with housecall from trend micro BUT you need an internet connection first.

atshield from click here will check for trojans,

avg anti-virus does what it says on the tin, checks for virus's but all these are no good if you cant access the internet. (unless you can download and burn them to a cd which you can then install in your "infected" pc)

hope this is of some help

Ad-Aware updates done via the Check for Updates on the main panel install themselves.
