  1. [quote name='terrib1' post='123322' date='Oct 21 2010, 06:33 PM']I am running Ad-Aware 8.3.3 and have had trouble updating the definitions for over a week. It gets hung up toward the very end of installing and nothing happens. I have tried manually downloading the definitions and that didn't work either. I have Windows 7 with Microsoft Security Essentials installed. Is it possible this isn't compatible with Ad-Aware? Thanks.[/quote] I installed 8.3.3 yesterday and had to wait 6-7 hours for the 179 updates to install. Others are also having problems. My OS is XP so it may not matter what os you are using.
  2. About 30 mins after posting on this thread things finally started to move with my updates and within the hour the process was finished. Thank goodness! It did take about 6-7 hours from start to finish and I did get a box saying something about 'failed to initialise' or words to that effect, but it all seems to be up and working now. Hope others don't have to wait as long as I did though. it seems like a case of literally 'hanging' on in there.

Apparently you just have to let it run its course - there have been reports here of updates taking 30-45 minutes to finish.[/quote] I installed it today and like the other posters here I am having a problem with the updater. It has been stuch on 179 updates for about 4-5 hours now. Can Lavasoft please look at this problem and sort it out otherwise lots of new users may leave Lavasoft for more reliable software. What should we do : uninstall or what? Come on lavasoft, help us out here! Please!
