Hi, I have been having the same problem since 7:00 EST this morning. I'm really glad it's just not me. Stupid thing though, I thought my AdAware was corrupt or something so I removed it and then downloaded it again and am now back to day one needing the definition files. Like 500 days behind!! Stupid me.

 

Hugs,

I actually got the update, I just did a check, and now the new def file has gone and I am back with the previous one dated 19/09/06.

 

What the hell is going on Lavasoft??????

I too have been trying since 2 days ago (wednesday) to get updated. Figured something was wrong with installed program....uninstalled it....downloaded and re-installed.....still can't get updates. Says there is an error in retrieving the update and at times says it cannot connect to LavaSoft server.

 

I did download the def file and did a manual update and it now says I have an "EXPORTED" def file loaded. Anybody know if this is kosher?

 

I'm so confused...... :angry:

Ive got that export file too, I think they wanted us all to get that EXPORT file cause I actually managed to get the latest update this morning, but just 5 minutes ago after I did a check for updates it came up with the previous updates 124 19/09/06, its like they removed it from my computer, very odd!!!

I see from this thread there are several of us with this 'problem'

 

I am running Ad-Aware Plus (build 1.06r1)

 

Suffering (as other have) I thought I will try.

 

Uninstall / Reinstall

 

Big Mistake !!

 

I bought my copy in May 2005 and cannot access the original download.

 

Trying to recover my 'uninstalled' copy I partially succeeded but am now missin the manual (I can download another copy of that from the site) but much worse Ad Watch will not launch.

 

I get the error message

 

Internal Error-Site files missing or corrupted.

 

How can I correct that ?

 

What does lavasoft say about the update problem described in the thread ?

 

Thanks

 

Keith
