I have a new computer;; Dell 8400. Downloaded and configured the free Adaware Se Program
But, I cannot download and install webupdates. When I click on the configure and then the connect buttons, I get a signal that my computer cannot connect to Server. So, all I have are web update files that
are a year old/

How do I go about successfully doing the PERFORMING WEBUPDATE chore?

All worked well on previous Dell 8300 which I just replaced with the 8400.
Please help...... thank you, missfilippa

You can manually download the updates from www.lavasoft.de. Click download when you get there and look for "Latest definition file".

Could it be a firewall setting? At times, the download site for Ad-AwareSE is so busy that you might get that message, but if this has happened several times, it might be that the firewall is blocking it.
