  1. Since 1986 this is the [i]worst[/i] software that I have EVER seen. No form of Lavasoftware will ever see my hard-drive (nor will I ever recommend it). You have NO idea how torqued I am at this moment, e.g., your two-year old daughter can slide underneatth a bus after being raped and I couldn't care less.
  2. Stick a fork in it: ERR [0972] 2011/01/19 01:14:25: Could not initialize SDK Manager ERR [0972] 2011/01/19 01:14:25: Could not initialize SDK controller ERR [2640] 2011/01/19 01:19:08: Could not initialize SDK Manager ERR [2640] 2011/01/19 01:19:08: Could not initialize SDK controller ERR [0912] 2011/01/19 02:04:33: Could not initialize SDK Manager ERR [0912] 2011/01/19 02:04:33: Could not initialize SDK controller ERR [0944] 2011/01/19 02:12:08: Could not initialize SDK Manager ERR [0944] 2011/01/19 02:12:08: Could not initialize SDK controller ERR [0940] 2011/01/19 04:11:45: Could not initialize SDK Manager ERR [0940] 2011/01/19 04:11:45: Could not initialize SDK controller ERR [0916] 2011/01/19 04:15:06: Could not initialize SDK Manager ERR [0916] 2011/01/19 04:15:06: Could not initialize SDK controller ERR [0912] 2011/01/19 04:18:10: Could not initialize SDK Manager ERR [0912] 2011/01/19 04:18:11: Could not initialize SDK controller ERR [2376] 2011/01/19 04:19:26: Could not initialize SDK Manager ERR [2376] 2011/01/19 04:19:26: Could not initialize SDK controller ERR [0944] 2011/01/19 04:31:35: Could not initialize SDK Manager ERR [0944] 2011/01/19 04:31:35: Could not initialize SDK controller
  3. After [i]reinstalling[/i] Ad-Aware v9.0 [i][b]again[/b][/i] on 10 Dec 28 for at least as many times as the number of weeks that v9.0 has been avail, I once again am confronted with the dreaded 'service log error' phenomenon. The FIRST auto-update scheduled for 10 Dec 31 did not occur; I just [i]let it ride[/i]. Today is the SECOND scheduled auto-update, and it occured; here are the contents of the dreaded service log: ERR [0676] 2011/01/04 17:44:42: Could not initialize SDK Manager ERR [0676] 2011/01/04 17:44:42: Could not initialize SDK controller There is no Ad-Aware process running in process manager. Launching Ad-Aware from start programs causes it to hang and generate another service log with the identical pertanant content per above. Errors are evident in neither Win event-logs, nor HIPS and firewall logs. At this time, the [i]only[/i] way that I'm aware of to resolve the matter is to reinstall Ad-Aware from scratch. [i][b]THAT[/b][/i] is something that is not going to happen again; Einstein stipulated doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is lame thinking. Therefor, if I can not re-install v8.3.5 - the last version the actually worked - the long-term relationship between Lavasoft and myself has come to an end. For that putative purpose I'm downloading what I hope to be v8.3.5 standalone. IF IT IS NOT, then I will run with v8.3.3 that I do have on hand. IF ANY ADDITIONAL PROBLEMS SURFACE concerning the operation of this software, I guarantee you my relationship with Lavasoft is fine'; moreover, I will go out of my way to make site visits to each and every installaation I've personally had a hand in concerning installation of the software and explain he issue. I will encourage any of those users who have licensces to demand a refund of their moneies. FURTHERMORE, I [i]will[/i] prove to be the most vociferous, loudmouthed - well published - advertiser that Lavasoft can imagine Edit: Just finished the 127,847 KB download and it checks out to be 8.3.5; its all good if it works; I'm a patient man; as much as I hate having had to reinstall 12 times in the last 3 months, i like: [i]works now[/i]. v8.3.5 [i]was[/i] working good - last long time - until I mucked around w/v9.0 [quote name='visitor']Original post, started with version 8: [url="http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?showtopic=30301"]http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?showtopic=30301[/url][/quote]

    9.0

    Dudes. You've got to go back to the way it was in 8.3.5; I was very happy with the way yoopdats worked; good & last long time. They were very fast too (10 minutes from get-go to ending on my super-duper PIII 1400-S @ 146 FSB). Now its takin' forever and a day spinnin' gears and downloading 50+MB worth of *.sgn files two & three times (that end up disappearing). And then after each reboot it spins its gears for 'hours' - well not [i]really[/i] [b]hours[/b], but [i]still[/i] - and there's nuthin' to show for it. It used to always make a new [i]hashdiskcache[/i] and stuff. I noes this 'cause I always had to defrag the HDD afterwards; that not true anymore. [i]Seems[/i] like he spins gears and does nuthin' but waste my time. If somebody would ask me I'd tell 'em: you should let the user know [i]why[/i] you're wasting their time. You know, back in the day, when 8088 CPU was [i]the[/i] hottest thing on the planet, I wrote apps on [i]multi-user interactivet[/i] - gasp - [i][b]Unix[/b][/i] platforms - supporting several tens of users of green-screen Business BASIC source-code applications where a spinning stick on the 'status' line 24 @ column 75 (of 80) to indicate processing ('working' for you [i][u]Lost In Space[/u][/i] gurus). You wouldn't believe how many support calls I got without the spinning stick. Anyways, [i]that[/i], and you gots to let the user know when a reboot is necessary after a auto-update occurs. Just my two cents; you guys do whatever the heck you want; I'm still here despite some hiccups along the way. BTW: it seems like he cleans up well after himself; there are no oodles of *.sgn files lying around all over the place. So why do I have to run after him with a poopy-scooper-app that cleans up all the *.aawdef files he keeps leaving around? PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong in that regard: there's no reason to keep the antique *.aawdef files around, i.e., *.aawdef file(s) older than the 'current' ones are antique. Right?
  5. Yes! Flawlessly. I can also save the JNLP file to HDD - with Download Guard add-in enabled - and launch it locally. I gots 'xamples if you needs 'em. I noes this 'cause everybody else and their mother's uncles are havin' prollems w/the firewall and JNLP 'ceptin' me (so I be testin' and works good, last long time - I only gots prollems w/Download Guard). In general it works well ('cept for certain file download sites - which use some sort of weird download proxy thingy or sumpin'). AFAIK, its less of a resource hog than Avira Web Guard; DLG only activates for file downloads - doesn't buffer and scan the entire TCP input buffer on port 80 (or whatever); talk 'bout latency.
  6. Java Web Start will not start with Download Guard add-in enabled. This was true for both 8.3.5 as it is for 9.0.0
  7. Presently my up-time is 14 days 18 hours. I've encountered 3 auto-updates, with only ONE log entry encountered; the firewall blocked connection attempt by Ad-AwareAdmin.exe to: 91.213.208.128 Relevent Update.log entries: MSG [3080] 2010/12/07 03:19:42: Update finished MSG [1800] 2010/12/11 03:14:15: Downloading file: metafile.dat.lzma size: 13kB MSG [1800] 2010/12/11 03:14:15: Connected: download.lavasoft.com//public/aawburgundy/ MSG [1800] 2010/12/11 03:14:18: Extended definition: current version is 7542 and latest is 7600 MSG [1800] 2010/12/11 03:14:48: Extended definition: current version is 7542 and latest is 7600 MSG [1800] 2010/12/11 03:15:11: Definition: [b]failed to download[/b] [/public/aawburgundy/defs/_CORE_/aaw2009-excluded-build-150.193.aawdef.file] MSG [3172] 2010/12/11 03:15:16: Update finished Relevent entries in AAWAdmin.log: MSG [1392] 2010/12/07 03:19:39: Update: finished MSG [1800] 2010/12/11 03:15:14: Update: finished The foregoing notwithstanding, [b][i]AAW continued w/out skipping a beat[/i][/b]. From the logs is obvious that the scheduled 10 Dec 11 auto-update did not occure, nevertheless AAW loads w/out issue; it informs me that an upgrade is available (which I declined at this time); furthermore there are no service.log's created since reinstalling clean on 10 Nov 27. Apparently AAW now possesses the functionality to gracefully recover from abnormal update circumstances w/out the app getting horked out of shape. Manual web-update (from GUI) worked flawlessly with uninterupted functionality of AAW. When convienient for a reboot, I'm going to clean install to the latest version. I'm fairly confident that since the firewall and HIPS is now properly configured [i]in all aspects material to AAW[/i], it should [i][b]work good, last long time[/b][/i]. If you want to close this thread out, knock yourself out; AFAIC this is a done deal.
  8. [b]EDIT: much to my chagrin, this problem can be traced to AAWService being denied permission to modify: [i]C:\WINDOWS\Debug\UserMode\ChkAcc.log.[/i] The HIPS log notes that two attempts to do so were made at 10 Nov 25 071203 & 072845; [i]those attempts were denied[/i].[/b] That issue has been resolved. Furthermore, I've discovered that AAWService requires modify permission for the following registry key: HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings For the following values: Value=ProxyOverride Value=ProxyServer Value=ProxyEnable [i]All[/i] other apps have requested permission to modify the same values at the following registry key: HKUS\S-1-5-21-1355546302-2387749449-1072945706-500\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ The problem is resolved by allowing acces rights - for those apps having registry proxy settings access (modify) rights - to the following registry key: *\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyEnable *\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyServer *\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyOverride
  9. Recieved notice from Download Guard, 'scan failed - could not connect to Ad-Aware. Make sure Ad-Aware is running and manualy scan file by clicking 'send to Lavasoft'.

  10. Auto-update completed this morning w/out a hitch despite the fact AAWService IP connection attempt to 207.152.124.49 was blocked [i]again[/i]. 10 Nov 18 the firewall actually blocked AAWService connection attempts to [i]both[/i] 207.152.124.49 [i]and[/i] 207.152.124.59. I only updated the firewall with 207.152.124.59. D'oh. Today the firewall only blocked 207.152.124.49. LOL. Fixed dat. Anyways, no new Service logs, no errors in event log. Nada. Seems to work good last long time (so far).
  11. I noticed the following event log entries yesterday. Nothing was being done with AAW at the time. No auto updates are scheduled at that time. No Windows Defender alert manifested. Both AAWService and AAWTray were listed in process manager. The most recent timestamp of the AAW logs was from 10 Nov 19 (when a manual update was performed). No additional Service.log has been created since the initial installation v8.3.3 and update to 8.3.5 on 10 Nov 15.

  12. Autoupdate executed w/out a hitch this morning. That despite the fact that the firewall blocked IP connection attempt to 207.152.124.49 by AAWService. This IP address has been added to the AAW Service ??? IP zone so this won't be an issue in the future. In any case, it took all of about 5 minutes for AAW to complete its update gyrations. Moreover, no additoinal service log was created. I'm wondering if the problems I've recently experienced with AAW hanging is due to a transparent reboot condition post-update. AAWAdmin.log is indicating reboot required at the end of this morning's update. That is, if a previous update requierd a reboot and that never occurs, and a subsequent update occurs perhaps this is throwing AAW into a funk? If the reboot necissarily follows an update, some form of user notification should inform the user of this fact.
  13. [quote name='erpguy6' post='123662' date='Nov 15 2010, 02:47 PM']that's because Softpedia and other third party download sites are distributing the FULL Ad-aware 8.3.3 setup install package. visitor should have checked with Lavasoft if they're distributing the [b]full[/b] AAW 8.3.5 installation package and not just the 8.3.5 update. for now, I'll have to use the painfully slow update mechanism from the Ad-aware 8.3.4 program to download the update to ad-aware 8.3.5.[/quote] Huh? 8.3.5 update? The link Vistor provided IS for the 8.3.3 FULL installer. Dunno what's going on with your system, but 8.3.3 to 8.3.5 took no more than about 10 minutes for me.
  14. [quote name='visitor' post='123622' date='Nov 10 2010, 10:52 PM']In case softpedia hasn't updated to 8.3.5, try a Lavasoft mirror site: [url="http://www.lavasoft.com/products/ad_aware_free.php"]http://www.lavasoft.com/products/ad_aware_free.php[/url] 8.3.5 was released recently, and is supposed to update 4x faster.[/quote] FYI: The Lavasoft verision at the link you provide is distributing AAW v8.3.3
  15. The update didn't run as scheduled 10 Nov 8 0433 EST. No errors were discernable in any logs (either AAW or EventView). When I went into scheduled tasks and scheduled the update a few minutes into the future, I was required to enter the admin password. The update then ran fine at the newly scheduled time. No additional service log was created at that time. The scheduled AAW auto-update time automatically reverted back to the original Monday @ 0433 time some time over the course of the next 48 hours. The following errors are apparent again in the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\Logs\service.logs: ERR [3548] 2010/11/12 04:43:16: Could not initialize SDK

Nor has the HIPS complained about anything, nor has the firewall blocked any IP connection attempts related to AAW. At this time AAW won't not only launch, it doesn't start at boot. This came to front center forefront because I was observing the update today as it was occuring. When it finished (CPU load went to zero), I noticed no AAW Tray icon was evident. That's when I noticed no AAW processes active at all. So I rebooted. At boot the AAW update manager comes on for a few seconds, and the two empty bars display and then the update manager window disappears. No AAW process is evident in taskmanager processes. When I try to launch AAW manually, the update AAW splash screen appears, then the update manager appears, two empty bars display for about 10 - 15 seconds, and then it disappears. THen the spash screen displays with "loading...." and AAW process shows 0% CPU load forever. AAW never loads the GUI. One thing I notice is that no AAW process is listed in msconfig. However, the AAW Service in services.msc is listed as automatic except it is not started. The event viewer indicates start command sent, AAW service started and then terminates (all within one minute). There are three errors related to crypto32 listed that occured during boot however: Event Type: Error Event Source: crypt32 Event Category: None Event ID: 8 Date: 11/15/2010 Time: 5:02:03 AM User: N/A Computer: HAL9000 Description: Failed auto update retrieval of third-party root list sequence number from: <http://www.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/authrootseq.txt> with error: This operation returned because the timeout period expired.
