  1. Hi, Having complained it seems only fair to state that Lavasoft have fixed this problem with the installer language and I have successfully downloaded and installed v8.3 on both an XP Pro and a Vista machine. Ad-Aware Anti-virus + Anti-spyware + Anti-rootkit md5 ca8daaa68dd094d201fb5d6ab467ce82 12 July 2010 09:59:24 122MB (128,753,664 bytes) [url="http://download.cnet.com/3001-8022_4-10045910.html?spi=5546554b0093a65dad55a4a16fa1205c&part=dl-ad-aware"]http://download.cnet.com/3001-8022_4-10045...art=dl-ad-aware[/url] This will get you the new version. There is quite a bit of new stuff to configure. A notable modification is that it does NOT start it's service Automatically in either XP or Vista, hence allowing on-demand usage (to Augment other Anti-virus software). It works well, finding a virus on my first scan. Thanks Lavasoft! Helter_Skelter
  2. Hi LS linuxcity, I have just re-downloaded the v8.3 installer from download.com (directed via the Lavasoft site), it has a Timestamp of 18:32:17 06 July 2010. It is the same file I downloaded last week and yields the same language problem on attempting to install. Is there a link you can give me for an English installer? Thanks for your help, Helter_Skelter
  3. L S Jeffery, another thread [url="http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?s...st&p=120715"]http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?s...st&p=120715[/url] describes what happens if you install using the Turkish installer, even if you specify English all the messages that you get from the application whilst it is running are in Turkish. An English Installer would be nice, Thanks Helter_Skelter P.S. I am set to EN(UK)
  4. Hi, I just got a Popup on launching AdAware v8.2 to Upgrade to v8.3. I followed the link to download.com, downloaded the new version, uninstalled v8.2 nad then tried to install v8.3. I was faced with the first 3 windows written in a language I did not understand (ie NOT English). I was unsure what the buttons meant and so Aborted the installation. Could someone please post a link to a download of v8.3 in English, Thanks Helter_Skelter
  5. Hi LS Pekka, Thanks for your posts. You Guys don't hang around! I have just downloaded the latest signature list and scanned and the FP is no longer detected. Databaseinfo =========================== Version number: 115 Build Number: 0 Build Date and Time: 2008/08/22 10:23:26 Thanks for including the information on how to remove the old version of this Active-X control and how to download the latest one. Nice Work Cheers, Helter_Skelter
  6. Hi, I have just Done a Full Scan with Ad-Aware 2008. I got 5 critical identifications. Win32.Trojan.Agent They all seem to revolve around an Active-X Control which supports the McAfee service called "Am I Up To Date" (http://amiuptodate.mcafee.com/vsc/Intro.asp) the control itself is: C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\McUpdatePortal.dll Details of Active-X Control say: http://amiuptodate.mcafee.com/vsc/bin/1,0,0,9/... McUpdatePortalFactory Class {5F0C30E4-1E72-4DCC-85E5-57810F1CA97B} I can't find a way to copy it, guess it is in use. This is a legitimate McAfee service that tells you if your antivirus is the most up to date program version and signature version. I attach a log file so that someone can check if this is as it appears, a False Positive, Cheers Helter_Skelter Ad_Aware_20080821_19_37_54.log
