    Hi Jotazombie, Note that since you've paid for adaware antivirus you can contact the support team, instead of this forum with volunteers. You can select a menu item in the program to contact support. Have you tried to uninstall adaware antivirus, restart the computer, run the removal tool and then restart the computer before installing adaware antivirus again? Remember to have your license key available before uninstalling the program. Removal tool: https://www.adaware.com/removal-tool

    Hi, Once again, the definitions are failing to update automatically and even when I "manually" try to update. (I have AdAware Pro) It has now been more than 3 days since the last update and will be 4 days at the end of today (Saturday September 15 2018). The definitions version is 11534337. The last time this happened, a few months ago, it turned out to be a systemic issue, not just with my software, so I'd be interested in hearing if anyone else is having the same problem. Thanks. EC

    Hi, I am a developer with a software company. Adaware marks our program containing the Microsoft function CreateObject("WScript.Shell") a Trojan. When we remove only this line from the program and recompile, Adaware finds no Trojan in the file. Could someone please help? If required I can send the versions of the file. Many thanks in advance.

    When someone suddenly starts to receive a lot more of spams, it usually due to: The person has written the email address on a public web page, as in a forum, on Facebook, Twitter etc. A friend of the person has done the above. A web site, where the person has registered with the email address, has been hacked and someone else has been able to fetch the email addresses. The email account of a friend has been hacked and someone else has been able to read all contacts of the friend. When email addresses are found by someone with criminal intent, they are usually sold to a spammer or a spammer organization. #3 in the list can sometimes be checked by entering the email address on the web page https://haveibeenpwned.com/ where a person tries to track email addresses sold or published on the dark web. Unfortunately an antivirus program cannot protect you from such events. You can read about how email addresses can be collected here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Email_address_harvesting
