I'm having the very same problem. i asked through an email about this to Lavasoft and the reply was.......
Update to the latest version from the Support Center:
To download your software, log in, go to 'Your licenses'.
This will list your licenses and you will find the download links below each valid license.
Click the link and save it to your hard drive.
Then, enable 'Use rules in user list' in Ad-Watch->General Settings->Notifications

I've since done the above but now i've got 41 notifications to be dealt with, should i block them or accept them :angry: I don't know what to do.................
I used Ad aware last year, it stopped nearly everything in real time. This years version isn't nearly as simple/effective
I've bought a 2 year subscription, i'm beginning to regret it too........
So i'd quite like input on this too please
