  1. As long as everyone CAN get updates in some form (hopefully valid) or another. Thanks to everyone that posted what worked for them, and I hope I was able to help. TinQer
  2. If you got that far, then its a good probability that the "normal update" should work soon. TinQer
  3. Ok, (reset 'what' setting??) please describe for others to read what worked for you.... TinQer
  4. Interestingly enough, I don't know!!! Try it and post back here how it went so others can see the results. (I didn't have to use the manual update, AAW updated normally for me earlier today.) I'm glad the reboot worked for you! TinQer
  5. Just a curious question.... where in the world r u? (just looking for approximate whereabouts) So I can map out who isn't getting updates. Thank you TinQer (I know Canada/Ontario, and the West coast US isn't...) North-East coast US should/is.)
  6. Drag and drop that file into the C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware directory, then restart your system, Ad-Aware runs as a system service, so closing Ad-Aware from your desktop may not fully update. (Just a recomendation.) TinQer
  7. Thank you Chapin. I am watching both issues closely. I'll attempt opening the file, and put my 2 cents in again. TinQer. --------------------- Just downloaded and extracted (windows extract-all-files) to a temp directory without a problem. I am also on my 25th system using the update button from the app without a problem. (Just for everyone's knowledge I have another 40 to go.)
  8. To all, Please remember that any server updates that involve DNS changes can take between 24-72 hours to propagate around the world. If any changes were made (Recently a DNS poisoning issue was discovered, and likely that part of this problem is due to the corrections many DNS owners are making...) the delay may take days to propagate. AND many DNS servers are being updated which would add to the delay. So some may get their Ad-Aware updates and others may take up to another day or so. If you'd like to know more about the DNS issue, here is the link to the Internet Storm Center and the post/info: http://isc.sans.org/diary.html?storyid=4801
  9. Hello again Rose, Here is the Lavasoft link to get the core.zip file: http://download.lavasoft.com/public/core.zip This should work, as I've tried it several times over the last 10 minutes prior to this msg, and it has worked without fail each time. (And so has the Application's Update button.) But just in case the link provided is a direct connect. Tinqer
  10. Try this link.... (in IE 7) http://download.lavasoft.com/public/core.zip I just tried it 30 seconds ago from this post, and was able to download. Tinqer
  11. Hi Rose Red, May I suggest you delete the program (Using Add/Remove Programs)-reboot then download the latest version (save to ur fav place) and run the install again. If your running a version of Norton A/V (anything Symantec) disable it before installing Ad-Aware. Ad-Aware should now install cleanly. (Same goes for McAfee A/V.)
  12. AHH!!! lsrcfan is right!!!! Both application link to update, and the manual (on the support page) are working!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  13. When did you D/L the core.zip I just tried about an hour ago, and got nada!? (As in Port 80 of the website doesn't respond...) Tinqer
  14. Nope, manual D/L isn't there either. And nothing mentioned on the Internet Storm center....yet.
  15. Same here, and all my customers have reported the same problem. (63 so far.) Last update 26.07.08, possible victim of the latest DNS poisoning? (I am "hazarding" a guess here.) I will be attempting a manual D/L of the update from the main site. The web site link to the update is: http://www.lavasoft.com/support/faq_aaw2008.php?details=26 I suggest that anyone looking for answers PLEASE register, then raise your voice here. IF there isn't any activity, there won't be any answers.
