Can't download new definition files

Recommended Posts

With a deal of difficulty, I finally succeeded in downloading AdAware AE earlier this year. Now I find that when I try to download the current definition files the Update Manager appears, with its two progress bars. It charts a successful download of a couple of files, starts another, and some way into the download it just bloody disappears, vanishes in a wink!

I had the trouble with updates last year and was advised that my version was out of date and I needed AE. Attempted downloads of AE failed several times, but I persisted and at last got it. Now I see there is a newer version out already. Is there something that buggers up definition updates if you don't have the very latest version of AdAware? Why does the Update Manager do a bunk like that?

Definitions are a single file, so you're probably OK as long as the current definition number appears in the GUI.

Web update in the GUI updates both the program and definitions, with the last program update 8.0.8 released in Sept. It probably stops once it detects you already have it. You can also update definitions manually:

Although there has been a problem downloading core.zip lately. Last week, updates stopped on Monday. This week, update on Monday, but not Tues. Lavasoft is aware of this, but it's been an ongoing problem for months.
