Not a valid Win32 application

Question

I tried to download updates to Adaware free version and when I click on the icon I get an error message that it is not a valid Win32 application. I get this error on many of the files I download. Many of them download as two part files (Adaware didn't), one of which is apparently a video file, and neither part does anything. I usually use Firefox which apparanently has an issue that causes this, but when I have a problem with this I try to download through Explorer and Google Chrome with the same results. I have run Microsoft Security essentials, my current version of AdAware, and other programs with nothing serious found. Any help is most appreciated.

2shelbys,

Don't download it from ad-aware site they have some problem, download it from download.com or softpedia.com.and try using some download manager like orbit.

[/quote]The error indicates that the files are not downloaded correctly. Since you have this problem with many files, maybe there is some problem with your internet connection.
