I am using Ad-aware 6.0 Pro build 158. It will not run the web update. It connects and says I have the latest update in about half a second. (I am on dial-up) I download a manual update, but I do not know how to install it. Thanks in advance.

I got the update to load. I had to go to C:\Program files/Lavasoft/Ad-Aware, then drag and drop the new file and re-boot. It is now loaded. Thanks for the help.

G'day dabwid,

Just checkin'. Did you uninstall all old versions of AdAware before you installed the latest version?

And for your reference...the newest reffile is 01R 219 17.09.03

Happy surfing:p

p.s. Thanks RandyG..... my numbers got muddled:mad:

G'day RandyG,

Thank you for pointing out my "oops". My main concern was that the user was using the most up-to-date reffile. (With 19/09/03....it would certainly have been up-to-date :rolleyes: )

Maybe I have ESP :D

RandyG,

Thanks again Mate. Put it down to a SM.

(Senior's Moment) :D

I am truly grateful that you spotted it. Saves other from the frantic search for 'what is not there'. (y)

Take care...and happy and safe surfing
