Adaware will not update?

4 posts in this topic

Please can anyone out there help me with this one? I have file 61.0000 and I click to check for updates where it tells me a file is available? I click to update and when updated I do not have the new file 62.0000 so again I check and it says update available? I follow the same as before and it says update done yet still no new file, so why will Adaware not update? The recent problems are really putting me off using this product does anyone else have the same issue and more important is there a fix? Please help, starting to get very frustrated with Adaware?

Regards

I am having the exact same problem too.

 

I also have 61.0000. Update stays there is a new version (I assume 62.0000) so I download it and it finishes without problem but the version number stays at 61.0000, although the last update date does change. However, every subsequent update check keeps saying there is a new update.

Download from http://download.lavasoft.com/public/core.zip

Extract the file (core.aawdef) directly to the Ad-Aware 2007 folder (C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware 2007) *

Close and restart Ad-Aware.

When Ad-aware is restarted.

 

 

 

Go to Web Update

Select Settings

Select the button (…) by Use Definition File is

A box will open called Select definition file to use

Select the file core.aawdef and click Open

Go to Status and it should show the new date for the definition file

 

 

Shouldd do the job :)

The Development Team has found the problem setting that is causing Ad-Aware to crash on updating!

 

A permanent fix will be forthcoming but probably not until next week due to the Easter Holiday

 

For now this workaround works!

 

Please follow the instruction posted here:
