  1. I've been using Ad Aware along side Avast for the past 2 yrs now, I'd hate to have something go wrong now after updating to ver10. Anyone experiencing any problems? Thanks!
  2. [quote name='stophis' timestamp='1326658182' post='132198'] I´m also a little astonished, the last update was from 13[sup]th[/sup] Jan., in [url="http://www.lavasoft.com/mylavasoft/securitycenter/blog"]Definition file update for Ad-Aware[/url] the lastest version is 15th Jan.. When I klick the Web-Update I get the message "Software is already up to date, what´s going on? [/quote] Same thing happens to me!
  3. [quote name='LS Andy' timestamp='1326187050' post='131907'] Hi all, You will hopefully have noticed that the update problem has been resolved. Thank you for keeping us informed - it was very helpful. If you experience any more problems, please create a new thread in this forum. Thanks! Regards, Andy Lavasoft Malware Labs [/quote] Hi Andy, My latest update was on 08 Jan 2012 with def version 0150.0675, all attempts to update have been met with a message that software is already up to date, is this true? Thanks

My 9.6 stopped updating as 08 Jan 2012. Can this def file work for me? Thanks
  5. [quote name='cootmaster' timestamp='1326154706' post='131896'] why mine keep saying up to date [/quote] I guess Ad-Aware still has a problem either with their bandwidth or their new hardware installed last 05 Jan. 2012. I also have the definitions version 0[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][size=3]150.0675 for the past 2 days. Let's hope they resolve it soon.[/size][/font][/color]
  6. I had a successful update again about 10 mins ago 11:55 a.m. local Manila time.
  7. I was able to update just now with no glitches!
  8. Hi Guys! Happy New Year! After the update on the 31st I am now unable to get any updates. The download starts but is unable to finish the complete update. Am I alone in with this problem?
  9. Update worked fine with me too! Thanks CeciliaB for keeping us informed!
  10. I stopped getting any updates since the 23rd of Dec. When I try to update it says software is up to date.
  11. Ad aware won't auto-start today, after manually opening it and updating it, I got a prompt that ad aware had to uninstall and then proceeded to update. Then I checked the version it was still 9.5.1 which was what I had before. I guess I will have to wait until someone clarifies the Defender issue or fixes the updater for 9.6 before attempting anything else....

    Ad-Aware 9.0.5

    [quote name='CeciliaB' post='126871' date='May 19 2011, 05:45 PM']What happens when you double-click AAWTray? Try to install Ad-Aware without uninstalling first.[/quote] Nothing I think it's because it is running already, I'll try installing again.

    Ad-Aware 9.0.5

    [quote name='CeciliaB' post='126864' date='May 19 2011, 02:54 AM']Hi, Instead of pasting the snapshots in a Word file, start Paint and paste a snapshot in that program. Save the file with the file format .png or .jpg and you should be able to upload that file here.[/quote] Ok, here are the paint files.

    Ad-Aware 9.0.5

    [quote name='CeciliaB' post='126822' date='May 17 2011, 02:00 PM']Hi Gubat, Are there any program files in the Lavasoft/Ad-Aware folder? Can you start them?[/quote] There are a lot files left but I can't update anymore nor open the main window of Ad-Aware. I took snapshots( via print screen) of the files left for your info but the site won't accept a Word file, I tried to copy here but I can't do that either.
  16. Hi! This morning when I tried to update Ad-aware, it said that update file was missing I tried to restart the entire program and it said that the files were missing also. I tried from the start menu but when I clicked on the file it said that the shortcut was no longer valid and if I wanted to delete it, I said yes. I tried the same thing for uninstall and I got the same message, I deleted that shortcut too. I am now trying to uninstall Ad-Aware so I can reinstall it from the Lavasoft site but Revo uninstaller can't even find the file. Can I just delete the whole Lavasoft folder from Program files and reinstall? Thank you for any assistance.

Andy Lavasoft Malware Labs[/quote] Hi LS Andy, Will Lavasoft be fixing this problem or do we have to update manually like this from now on? I have AdAware on 2 pcs, 1 with XP Pro and another with Win 7 and I have to do this to both machines. FYI I have Avast too on both PCs and never had this problem until 4/12/2011 when the usuall update procedure worked. Thanks for any assistance!
  18. [quote name='Gubat' post='126118' date='Apr 15 2011, 12:57 PM']I tried this method and still my definition version is 4/13/2011 0150.0363. Usually when I update Ad-aware sort of reboots but I noticed that this is not happening anymore. BTW I'm in the Philippines![/quote] Finally got to update to the latest version 0150.0367 I finally figured out what the previous posts recommended as "exit and update from the start menu", meaning look for the Ad-aware updates from the Lavasoft program before re-starting the program completely. Hope this clarifies somewhat for the other posts!

  20. [quote name='Gubat' date='Feb 17 2010, 10:30 AM' post='116775'] I just upgraded to ver 8.2 a while ago, everything seemed fine until I used smart scan, I got the message that Ad Aware had to shut down due to an error and a report was sent to Lavasoft. I tried it again and still the same thing. Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks! By the way I updated after opening Ad Aware and got a message to do so, CNET listed the version as 8.2.
  21. [quote name='jchriss' post='116774' date='Feb 17 2010, 10:17 AM']I was able to update to version 8.2 today. I ran scans and everything looks great. No crashes. It seems like a very nice new version. I'm using Vist 32-bit operating system, and like I said, absolutely no problems. This looks like the best Ad-Aware yet.[/quote] I just upgraded to ver 8.2 a while ago, everything seemed fine until I used smart scan, I got the message that Ad Aware had to shut down due to an error and a report was sent to Lavasoft.
