Ad-aware 2007 Free Automatic Update Function

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I´m new here, so maybe i ask stupid questions, forgive me :o :o Is there in Ad-Aware Free that kind automatic update function when started ad-aware it checks updates automaticly and it informs you that?? I don`t, or it`s not work like it should. It works fine when i hit update button manually and pop-up inform me if there is updates available... And log files don´t say anything about Automatic Updatings. Thank you and sorry my bad english :wub:

Hi Jarod,

 

No, the free version does not have automatic updates. That feature is available in the paid version only. See the product comparison chart here:

However, for the free version, you may use the webupdate to manually update your free Ad-Aware 2007 :)

Perhaps I'm confused by the question.

 

Do You mean this setting? (see image below) That one will only popup when you open Ad-Aware and it finds your definitions are out of date beyond what setting you have chosen.

For the free version, you will still need to get the update itself manually if updates are available.

 

By "on startup" I assumed the poster meant "on Windows startup" and the paid versions will do that I believe. Not the free version. Automatic updates when Ad-aware is set to startup with Windows is the "Automatic Threat updates" in the chart I was referring to :)

Maybe program thought that definitions are old? I have set it 6 days,works fine. Have you tried other like 5 or 8 day setting?

If i set it now 3 day,i get same red information box. ;)

Hi!

Last update was 11.7.2007,3 days ago. I think that 17.7.2007 program thinks that definitios are old if there are not new update before that. You have now set it 5 days, and if it goes over that (11.7-17.7=over 5 days) it may show you again that red x information. I dont know but maybe..? ;)
