Hello Sniper47,

You can still install updates manually. Posts 3 and 6, you need information from both, explain how here: http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?showtopic=17852

I do not know, however, how long these updates will be available. I would advise looking for other AntiSpyware programs. Bleeping Computer has a list here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic3616.html

PS; when you run it DO run it from its desktop icon ; it CAN take some time TO run on a complete computer scan ( OFF line of course)but worth every second!!!!!!!!!

i didnt really understand the part you stated " it can take some time TO tun on a complete computer scan (offline of course)"???

And by the way do you suggest me to uninstall Ad-ware SE and install this??? or is it okay to have both on?? would it conflict?

erxpect the scan to take from 20 minutes to maybe a few hours

an infected computer i ran it on took ...erm........was it two hours to run

also DO run it OFF line PLEASE

And by the way do you suggest me to uninstall Ad-ware SE


in my view adaware se is now a defunct program; IF you attempt TO update it you have to go to the web site...I really cannot be bothered with that performance ;mine was removed ages ago
