What is a proxy

Recommended Posts

It is obvious to me that I need to set up my proxy, that I need a username and a password and then enable it. I don't know what a proxy is, how to get a username or set up a password. I run windows XP on my home computer and have the anniversary edition of ad-aware. I just want to be able to update the dat files which I haven't been able to do since upgrading to this anniversary edition. Any help would be appreciated.

To be honest if you don't know what it is you probably don't need it.

 

have you tried running the update from the start menu?

 

Oh and if you could please tell me which version of adaware AE you are using.

I have Windows XP Home edition and I'm running the Free Anniversary Edition and I have tried to update from the start menu, but I get a message that says I can not update and that I need to check my settings. I haven't had to set this up before, and thus I have no idea what it means. Thanks for any help.
