the other day when i noticed yet another adaware update posted and bearing in mind i have checked virtually every other day for updates and been told non each time i decided to unin/reinstall as add remove programs said the last timr i ran it was 9 months ago. a new install found a dialler been on my system for 6 mths, tonight having taken pics of today i went to open olympus cam media to download the pics and got error 'panorama.dll not found re installing may fix' a system restore to when i last used it made no difference, it also in add remove tells me avg was last used 8 months ago and adaware (new one) last used 7 months ago. anyone any ideas what is going on?

Add/Remove also tells me porkies. I don't think that is the cause of any problems.

ok so ignoring that and accepting adaware developed it's own probs whenever how come i now have a cam media prob.

I don't mean to be patronising because I know from your regular posts that you're 'on the ball' regarding AV and spyware. However if the dialler/trojan has (possibly) been on your system for sometime it may have done 'something' to your AV. Why not try an online virus scan at click here

Apologies if I'm not in order.

Add/remove tells me that I last ran Ad-Aware on 1 November. In fact I ran it this morning after updating it.

If Ad-aware won't update download from click here and unzip to the Ad-aware folder.

I think, as usual, that I'm missing the point.

my thanks for your posts vog and big elf, new adaware is fine, as i posted i downloaded a new one because i never got the updates posted here which may have detracted from my current problem with my olympus cam media prog re getting into my albums etc, i wish to raise another point on the back of this and that is i have backed up everything in that program, (quite a bit of that somehow became copies but i can not remove the copies from the cd rw i copied them to) i thought that was one of the principles of cd rw that one could add/remove at will,

cheers and best wishes to all.

check event viewer for error messages that may point to the problem/solution.

also have camedia master 4.10 but never use it so not sure about the errors.

ran the suggested scan and clean bill of health.

typing "panorama.dll" into google brings up a few olympus links but the translator doesnt work in any language.
