Error updating adaware
Extract it to your adaware folder (c:\program files\lavasoft\adaware or something similar) and replace existing file. article=187117 I tried it and it immediately worked. Only a suggestion, Eddie The Security Forum and the Adaware Forum is best for that issue. Bob I encountered this problem for the first time today, updating my parents' computer.Changing your DNS server configuration might do the trick.Edit the DNS servers used in Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) properties of your Local Area Connection.I'll keep trying for another day at different times of the day/night, but if it still doesn't work, is that indicative of another issue? Just for the test, I have just updated - took about 10-15 seconds. What I did was manually download the definitions and unzip them into the proper folder and renamed the previous definitions to old This is what the automated update does.
After that, I still had problems retrieving updates, but it eventually went away on its own So I never discovered the source of the problem.
A lot of people use Ad-aware, and they are all trying to update at the same time, which will overload the servers. I find the best times to update, are late at night, or a couple of days after the updates come out. It's not an unusual problem, especially on the day the updates come out.
