ad aware setup without internet link

Recommended Posts

I get an infected PC and I can't go on Lavasoft web ! (I can reach some url, but not on lavasoft, avast and spybot !)
So I want to load on another PC (not infected) :
- the lavasoft software (set up)
- the last database available
and then put on the infected PC to clean it.

Is it possible and if yes how to do it ?

thank's in advance for your help.

Hi,

Yes it is.

You would download the Ad-Aware installer and the latest definition file (from [url="http://www.lavasoft.com/mylavasoft/securitycenter/blog"]here[/url]), copy them to some removable media (i.e. a USB stick, or CD) and then insert that in the other computer. Then just run the installer.

However, a couple of points:[list]
[*]Ad-Aware 2008 is an old version, you should download Ad-Aware 8.1 from [url="http://www.lavasoft.com/products/ad_aware.php"]here[/url]
[*]To install the latest definition file you need to extract the file from the zip folder you downloaded and copy it to the following folder:[list]
[*]Vista and 7: C:\Program Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\Defs
[*]XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\Defs
[/list]
[*]If Ad-Aware will not install on the infected computer, then try renaming the installer. If this fails to work, read the instructions in my signature and post a HJT log in the HJT forum for analysis.
