  1. QUESTION 1 The review here: [url="http://download.cnet.com/Ad-Aware-Free-Internet-Security/3000-8022_4-10045910.html"]http://download.cnet.com/Ad-Aware-Free-Int...4-10045910.html[/url] states that the Free edition of Ad-Aware 8.3 does NOT include an anti-virus. Did the reviewer get it wrong??? QUESTION 2 Does the antivirus engine in Ad-Aware Free 8.3 conflict with Avast Free 5.0.594 (or other versions of Avast Free 5)? Many thanks. Y.
  2. Where can I download Ad-Aware Free version 8.2.4? The download button on Lavasoft's Website leads to CNet where only version 8.2 is available. Thank you for a great forum. Y.
  3. Maybe someone can help me: I want to scan all of C:\ - EXCEPT one folder (Windows\winsxs). I do NOT want to scan Windows\winsxs - but I want to scan the rest of C:\ How do I set an exception in the scan settings? Many TIA. Y.
  4. I want to report the same phenomena: Downloaded Adaware Free (the new version). Uninstalled Anniversary (which worked like a charm) and installed the new version. Scan froze at: Critical Areas ---> [enumerating clasid's] Clicking the Stop Scan button did nothing. Clicked Help and the help section did open, though. Tried to shut down Adaware by clicking the red X - but it kept running in the system tray. Had to shut it down using Task Manager (sometimes it appeared as an application running, sometimes only as a process). Tried again: Unchecked the Critical Areas in the Default Scan profile. The scan worked perfectly. Tried scanning ONLY the Critical Areas. the scan stalled again. CPU usage was enormous (40-60%). Hope they fix it real soon. I loved the Anniversary Edition. Yarok OS: Windows XP SP2 fully patched Security softwares: Avast (free), ZoneAlarm Pro 8 (which also includes antispyware)
  5. Hi, Teddyboy, Thank you. I posted to the wrong board. Too many security apps! (( Y.
  6. Hi, The free AVG Anti-rootkit version 1.1.0.42 is almost one year old. Isn't one year between updates way too long? With rootkit technologies and tactics changing by the day, is AVG Anti-rootkit effective anymore, after one year without updates? Does anyone know when will AVG come out with a new version? TIA. Y.
  7. Much appreciated. Thank you. Yarok
  8. Hi, Thank you for a great product. Does Adaware 7.0.2.5 detect and remove rootkits? Thank you. Y.
  9. I have Adaware free (great software, thank you!). When in Full Scan, it goes through the Hosts File and scans dozens of entries inside it. Example of one such entry found by AdAware in the Hosts File: www.avp.com 127.0.0.1 BUT My Hosts File (Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts) is EMPTY!!! Where are the scanned entries coming from? They can't be coming from the empty Hosts File!!! Thank you again. have a cool end of summer. Yarok
  10. Hi, Spike, Thank you for your kind help. My two threads are UN-related. One thread is about my difficulties with the definitions file. THIS thread is about a mysterious IP address that appears in the logs. I still don't have an answer: What is this IP address? Why is Webupdate redirecting to this address? My hosts file is clean and hasn't been alatered since December 2004. Thank you again. Yarok.
  11. Hi, I have a free adaware. I can't download the new definitions file (dated November 2, number 130). I keep getting: "The downloaded definitions file could not be read. Please update again." There is a new IP in my webupdate log. This IP - 82.99.19.12 - never appeared in any of my logs until November 2. It has no reverse DNS. My hosts file is unchanged since December 2004, is read-only, and protected by ZoneAlarm - so I am not being referred to this IP by my hosts file. Here is the log (it's in German) Verbinden=connecting Verbunden=connected getrennt=terminated 11-6-2006 4:45:29 PM... Verbinden mit 207.44.136.40. Verbunden. Chunk gestartet 11-6-2006 4:45:30 PM...

  12. Hi, Using Adaware's Webupdate I can't download the new definitions file (dated November 2, number 130). I keep getting: "The downloaded definitions file could not be read. Please update again." Additionally, on this page: http://www.lavasoft.com/download_and...tion_database/ the "current definitions file" is NOT current! This file is NOT definitions file 130: http://download.lavasoft.com/public/defs.zip It is definitions file 129 dated October 26, 2006. Anyone having the same problems? Yarok
