Ok I hope someone can help here I have trawled google but no results. With certain downloads which may have something to do with server security it downloads only 1MB or 1057k then fails. This is with Lavasoft AdAware 8 on the definition updates. I had the same problem getting mp3s from http://www.bandit.fm I can't recall any others right now but I am on 56k modem and have the same issue thru shared internet from windows vista. This one is XP Professional SP3 with all updates. Modem manufacturer is out of business so there are no more driver updates for me. I have not tried using another type of internet connection as this is not possible at present. With the mp3s I was able to use library internet but adaware does not give you the links for the definitions so I am stuck. (only works with the update program which downloads automatically)

Thanks for reading this and I hope I am not the only one in the world with this problem, and that it can be fixed.

Hi macbeth44 -

You can "Disable" AdAware while you download and then 'enable' it once you are finished - If any of these are uTorrent sites then they may have some blocking issues with AdAware - Disable/Shut down AdAware first and then run the scan after you have finished getting your music -
Make sure your Anti virus is still turned on -

Thank You - :thumbsup:

You should talk to your ISP about it and see if they can provide any assistance.
To Err is human; to really foul things up requires a Bleeping Computer!

I will ask my ISP tomorrow. I am also going to try removing DNA as that might be interfering.

OK talked to my ISP and they are not interested. Problem is still unresolved and I have managed to manually download the core.zip for ad aware but I can't get other new updates which are greater than 1 MB, eg (log)

Notice that it downloaded and applied the 306 update and genotype as they are less than 1 MB but downloads only 1,056 kB (according to Windows Vista, not sure if thats 1000 or 1024 Bytes) Hopefully this will be enough for someone to figure this out. I have disabled firewalls and virus scanners. Using this driver here: http://majorgeeks.com/SmartLink_V.9092_Int...odem_d4927.html
I have in mind to move computer to a friends house and see if it works on broadband or whether it is this modem that is the problem.
update: Trying to download this results in it stopping at 1,056 kB also: http://dl.betanews.com/spybotsd162.exe
Thanks for reading this apparently unique problem.
