Ad-Aware won't update

Recommended Posts

I have Ad-Aware 6.181 Personal.

Every time I try to update, the details section says, "error retrieving update"

I am positively connected to the internet and I can download from other programs.

The Status says OK.

It goes thru its scanning mode.

I would appreciate some help to solve this.

Thank you.

Ditto - I get the "error retrieving update" message too.

Anyone at Lavasoft know when it will be rectified?

(I believe this same thing has happened in the recent past, October 2006?)

Thanx guys!

;)

I was able to download today's update SE1B151 at http://www.lavasoft.de/download_and_buy/detection_database/.

It went into a temp folder though instead of my download folder.

 

I updated via the program's updater after trying 5 times and on the sixth attempt it downloaded a beta file: SE 1B151 BETA. I deleted this file and downloaded from manual download location and correct file now displayed. Go figure?

After 7 days of not getting any help, I figured out that Ad-Aware will not

update Ad-Aware 6. So I downloaded Ad-Aware SE personal and it updates just fine. If anyone is using the

older version of Ad-Aware, unstall it and go for the new version. :) Griz
