    The one I referenced was for the main Lavasoft site: http://www.lavasoft.de/support/download/

    http://www.lavasoftusa.com/ refers to the home page of Lavasoft's USA site ... clicking on "download" from there will direct you here: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/

    Either one will work just fine to get a list of the mirror sites ... just be sure to run webupdate before running an A-A scan, in case the cache on the mirror is old. I suppose it wouldn't hurt to make sure the download is for 6.181 ... :D

    I'm no computer guru. I just know I got Ad Aware last month and it scouted out a couple spyware files. When I downloaded Spybot it revealed about 100, so you may want to re-consider using Ad Aware. I have heard they aren't good and my experience proves that.

    I installed build 6.181 last night and I followed the excellent guide by Winchester73 but I'm having problems - the prog does everything except remove the garbage. I can get it to scan correctly, produce a log file, then I can right click on the results pane and select everything for removal but as soon as I click the next button I get zip - nothing happens after that - most of the buttons become unavailable but I can still scroll up and down the list and deselect items. I left it in that state for ages (took a shower) and came back and it was still the same. Task Manager in Win2K says it's running ok. Anyone know what's occurring ?
