Is anyone running Ad-aware Anniversary Edition? I am and it now won't update. I've tried re-installing, turning off my firewall, checking utility settings and all the other usual stuff one does when these things go wrong...
If anyone has got an idea what the problem could be then please let me know....



Update:...
Problem fixed..

I used the updater yesterday kemical and the definitions file was 0148.0002 date 09-03-30
I tried the updater just now and there have been no other updates since then. There was no problem yesterday with that update as I ran a full scan just after. Are you running spybot as well as I seem to remember as I was updating Spybot yesterday it was none to happy having Ad-aware as company. I ignored the warning and both updated o.k.

Thanks Bill but I've tracked down the problem. I use a screensaver that does medical research (looks for proteins) and the results had backed up. Clearing the cache solved the ad-aware problem.

Thanks for the reply though...:)
