Current Definitions File?

Recommended Posts

Can someone please tell me what the current definitions file for Ad-Aware 8.3.0 is? According to the Lavasoft website is is 150.4 but I have performed an update 3 times this morning (downloading what looks to me the same files each time!) but the definition file does not change on the main page. It remains at 150.000
Please refer to attached screen shot: Edited by Newfan

You can also try to update the definitions manually:

I'll let you know if it freezes again when i run adaware update manager once a new definition file is released i.e. 150.6 which will be the next one as 150.5 was released 3 hrs ago to now

I've had no issues updating with the one new version until now after installing 150.3 which i installed last night ;) Edited by Deano

I just downloaded the Manual Definitions from the link provided in Current Definitions File Topic and extracted the file to
* C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\Defs for Windows XP then when i went to reopen the Adaware 8.3 Window it says 149.0320 but i don't have Adaware 8.2 instead i have Adaware 8.3 it read 150.005?

I can update to the latest definition file but I have to update 4 ([b]FOUR[/b]) times a day to receive all the updates.

Do you know what this update (CSC39-EN-6499-6500-I.sbr.sgn) is for?

[quote name='visitor' post='120737' date='Jul 7 2010, 02:02 PM']That's an anti-virus engine update. The English translations should be a file called en.xml located in
C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\Toolbox\AutoStart Manager\translations (or something similar, since I'm using an old version of Ad-Aware AE on XP).[/quote] Edited by Deano

I merged the 2 current definition topics to keep everything in one place - I checked the chronology hoping it would be easy to follow.

After manually installing definitions, you need to exit Ad-Aware completely (right-click tray icon option) then restart to load the new definitions. Let me know if it works; otherwise, it may be a bug which needs to be reported since 8.3 should read the 150.xxx number even if the definition file is the same as 8.2's 149.xxx. Definitely shouldn't need to reinstall ;) Edited by visitor

The updates with the latest version of Ad-aware seem to have gone beyond a joke - this morning I have tried to update Ad-Aware 8.3.0 eight times to receive the latest 150.13 update - each time it appears to have downloaded/applied the same 68,000KB file and then relaunch the program (without reinitializing) and will not update to the latest update. Updating with other spyware programs are not this bad - Spyware Doctor & Malwarebytes take approx 15 seconds to update each day. I really hope the update problems are rectified soon.
