When trying to update definitions file I get about 5 % downloaded then get "error retrieving update " message. I am connecting to internet via a network server. I have tried uninstalling and downloading again, but still same happens.

What version of Ad-aware are you using?
Does it always do this, or is this the first time?
Are you behind a proxyserver?

I am behind a proxyserver and keep receiving error messages when I attempt to update my definition file in Ad-Aware SE. What is your adress to the update server, so that we can allow this in our proxy?
We use two different servers depending on the version of Ad-Aware being run:

Ad-Aware SE Personal (freeware): "updates.ls-servers.com"
Ad-Aware SE Plus/Pro: "download.lavasoft.de.edgesuite.net"

You can also manually download the update from here and extract them to your Ad-aware folder. How to manually update Ad-aware.
