Ad-Aware 9.6 will not update

Recommended Posts

I seem to have a slightly different update problem (with AdAware Free 9.6). When I try to update definitions by clicking
on web update in the main page I get a message saying that the software is already up to date even though the latest update date on the main screen has 06/01/2012 (plus the number 0150.0675) for several days. I don't know how to manually download definitions. Can someone point me in the right direction please?

Additional info:
I have the same problem, the last update via the update-button is from 7.1.12, the last on http://www.lavasoft.com/mylavasoft/securitycenter/blog is from 8.1.12, today is 10.1.12.

What happens?
Using the core.zip, see above, I´ve got the files from today????

Hi Stophis,

The redirect message sates that the def version is for 2008 and only for XP and Vista, I am running Win7 and 9.6 ad-aware. My 9.6 stopped updating as 08 Jan 2012. Can this def file work for me?

Thanks

2nd machine i just tried to update again, it froze, just like the other one did, i rebooted cuz i also updated adobe reader, and it asked to reboot. once loaded i pulled up adaware, and it shows current update finally, i hit update and says its current, so i suspect the issues finally got resolved on your end. shew, sure glad thats over.

Hi Gio7707,

You probably has the latest, check its number. It is another problem now, see http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?/topic/32085-ongoing-def-file-update-issues-01500675/

Hi Cecilia,
why Lavasoft in overview of version control (see Security Center / Definition File Updates) does not have a version number? It would be easier than just a date. Thanks for information.

Ok, that are the facts. :(

But with thousands of new malware files per day Ad-Aware seems to be a little antique and insecure, that´s my point of view.

Hi count,
Sorry, but I don't know why Lavasoft has selected to do that. The user interface of Ad-Aware version 10 (I'm using the beta version) has changed a lot since version 9 and there is a threat definitions version and not a date on the update screen.

When it is stable enough, I guess :) and it is impossible to say when all serious bugs have been corrected.

I just was able to download an update to 9.6, so there must be progress on the server work. Interestingly, the update version # still shows the previous number of 0150.0675, which is the same for me as my last download from 1/6/12.
