Hi guys, first post coming from Thailand,

When I do an ad-aware update it downloads the update to 100%, closes normally then the next screen still has the previous level of update on it. Do it again same same, then another day updates OK. But more often than not does not update.

Any clues?

Thank You.

Hi spacebass

If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from: http://download.lavasoft.de.edgesuite.net/public/defs.zip

The latest definition file is 5/17/06. If this is the date your computer is showing for Adaware, it is correct.
