AdAware 2007 cannot update through firewall

Recommended Posts

HI ALL:

I recently installed the free version of AdAware 2007 because SE wouldnt update anymore. However, I cannot get it to update without disabling my Norton firewall. I never had trouble updating SE with this firewall active, and I have configured it to permit all AdAware 2007 communication but still no luck. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to the Lavasoft Support Forum.

 

I have Norton Personal Firewall installed and I can update my Ad-Aware 2007 Pro just fine. Make sure you set Norton to Permit these:

aawservice.exe

Ad-Aware2007.exe

LSUpdateManager.exe

Hi sinan :D

set Firewall Security level to 'safe mode '

( firewall is learning and alerts you ).

'Defence and Security Level' also.

Open Comodo from time to time, locate 'Summary' /'Proactive Defence' / ...files waiting for your review and enter.

Checkmark all trusted entries and move them to ' My Own Safe Files...

Hi.

 

I started my PC with no firewall at all and still ge same ssl failed message.

 

What do you think the reason.

 

For instance, how can I d/l and install defintions files manually.

 

Thanks.

Thanks Raziel.

 

It looks like "make sure to configure the Ad-Aware WebUpdate settings. In Ad-Aware 2007->WebUpdate->Proxy settings.

Save the new settings and try a webupdate again" is not availabe on free version.

 

It seems that either I d/l defintions manually or uninstall it.

 

Thanks again.

Hi sinan :)

How to update manually

Download the current def. and save it to desktop.

Unzip/extract the file to Docs.and Settings/All Users/App.-Data/Lavasoft/Ad-Aware2007

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Raziel
