  1. Thanks. Figured that's what it was. :-/

  2. Win XP SP 3 machine here. All updated fine here as well; ran a normal update at 6:00 AM CDT. Thank you Lavasoft, fast response and remedy. Job well done!
  3. All is well with this Windows XP machine, too. Executed update to moments ago and received several new files. Ad-Aware 2008 Version is now with Definitions 0148.0045. Log shows message "Definition file is up to date, Done gathering update information". Thank you for the quick diagnosis and fix to the issue, Lavasoft. Well done! But, how'd you do it??
  4. Hello. I prefer and want to continue using Ad-Aware 2008. However, I would be very happy to allow LavaSoft to access my machine. I can download and view the .DAT file (which is a list of values and keys) and I have a clean system (Dell 4700, Win XP SP 3, Ad-Aware 2008 Version Defs 0148.0040, and Norton Internet Security 2009 Version Please accept my apology in advance if they want only AA AE users. Thank you.
  5. Hello. I'm experiencing the same symptoms as others using Ad-Aware 2008. Updates using both the program's Update button as well as the Start Menu Software Update button fail. Here's what I've tried to do to remedy the problem (but please note, all my efforts have failed). I was using Version I tried all suggested fixes including downloading current defs (core.aawdef) manually, without success. I then uninstalled and ran CCleaner (to repair registry errors which may not have been removed during uninstall), then reinstalled an earlier version ( Updates still failed (couldn't update either the program version or defs). I then uninstalled and ran CCleaner again, then reinstalled (which I had saved on a USB memory key). Updates still failed (couldn't update either the program version or defs). Finally, after reinstalling, I again pasted core.aawdef to my C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware directory. Tried one final update using both methods--still failed. "Arrgghhhh!" This is acting more like a server issue than a program issue. You would think ONE of the versions I installed should have worked. There must be something preventing the programs from communicating with Lavasoft's server. There doesn't appear to be an issue with my Norton Internet Security Program Control settings--all Lavasoft programs are on Auto and can pass through the firewall. I'm running Windows XP SP3. Thanks in advance to Lavasoft for working on this problem!
