  4. Elfman, See Your topic as you are being help there. GRAFX
  5. Ad-Aware User 1.06r1, As long as you have Ad-aware SE Build 106r1 then you have the latest available program release all you need to do now is to keep the definitions up to date by using the WebUpDate every time just before you scan that way you will always scan using the latest definition file. GRAFX
  6. vranken, I recommend that you try doing a thorough Disk Defragmentation, followed with Check or Scan Disk depending upon your version of Windows then Please can you make sure that you have Ad-aware SE Build 106 and have used the WebUpDate feature to get the latest Definition file The appearance of hanging usually occurs when 'Scan archives' is selected. Its not actually stopped scanning however. What's happening is Ad-aware is de-compressing/ unzipping files to check the contents for suspicious files, the Ad-aware re-compresses the files. This can take some time. If this is the setting that's effecting your scans, Try this Open your Ad-aware, Click the "Settings" (The Gear) button at the top right to display the "Settings" main menu. Click "Scanning". Un-Tick 'Scan within archives' and then Click on "Scanning Engine" then un-Tick (un-check) "Unload recognised modules during scan" then Click on the Proceed button. Also try shutting as many programs/process as possible. (I.E firewall Anti-Virus etc.) Please make sure that you Unplug/disconnect your Modem before disabling your Anti-Virus/Firewall Just remember to turn them back on Then scan with Ad-ware by doing a "Full Scan" and post your logfile here by using the "reply" feature, GRAFX
  7. Elfman, There is one thing that springs to mind and that is that as far as I am aware you can not set the Personal (Free) version to automatically update. but if it is a paid for version then as i said rename or delete the .def file that is in your Ad-aware folder then re-download the latest definition file.

  8. ReadOchoa, Please can you make sure that you are using Ad-aware SE Build 106 [if not Uninstall your old Ad-aware first then install SE] Then use the WebUpDate to get the latest Definition file SE1R121 28.08.2006 To do this Open Ad-aware Click the WebUpDate button at the top right hand side of the Ad-aware screen (The world globe). Click "Connect" Ad-aware will then download the latest Definition file for you. To make sure it is updated , look at the main Ad-aware screen, and look under "Initialization Status" It should say the Latest Definition file. then scan doing a "Full Scan" and then post your logfile here by using the Add-Reply Feature . As Logs are stored in : C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-aware\Logs\. An easy way to get there is to click Start, click Run And type in and press ENTER: %appdata% then click Lavasoft then Ad-Aware and then Logs. scroll down to find the latest one that you have (by date & time) and open it right Click select all copy and then paste the contents of it here. (Make sure that all of your Logfile has been posted, sometimes it will require two post's to get it all) I recommend that you use the WebUpDate just before you scan that way you will always be up to date. (note The Application Data is a hidden folder, so you will need to show hidden files and folders and for Windows 98/ME users your logs are stored in C:\WINDOWS\All Users\Application Data\ ) by default.

  10. Elfman, Please can you make sure that it is Ad-aware SE Build 106 that you have. [if not Uninstall your old Ad-aware first then install SE] now you can disable that notification by opening d-aware then click on the settings tag (The Gear) and then un-tick the option that says "Prompt to update outdated definitions consider definition outdated after **" then click th proceed button. But I recommend that first you open the Ad-aware folder on your "C" Drive and rename the defs.ref to say old defs.ref then try downloading the Definition file again. GRAFX
  11. leetsawce, Please can you make sure that you are using Ad-aware SE Build 106 [if not Uninstall your old Ad-aware first then install SE] But I recommend that you keep trying the WebUpDate to get Latest Definition File but if you cannot wait a minute longer then you can of cause always download it manually [email protected];<'S
