I have Ad-Aware, which I've had for a while. Recently, I reinstalled it to fix some things.
However, whenever I update it, it offers the software updates and then downloads them. And it does this every time I click 'Update'. I've noticed that it's the same 25 updates that it downloads. At the end of the download/installation, it always confirms that the installation is complete. Why is it prompting me with the same updates every time??

I don't use AdAware, but is there any way to go to their site and manually download the updates?

Ad-Aware 2008 Version

There is a way to manually download the updates for Ad-Aware, but as far as I can see, it's only the definition files.
