    I've been trying to update my ad-aware se. When I run a scan I get a message saying that my definitions are old and would I like to update. I chk yes and then I'm told that there are no update components available. I've been trying for almost a week and each day I'm told my definitions are a day older and out of date. I've tried updating from the lower right hand of the 1st page and from the update announcement pop-up. I used to be able to update with no problem. What's happening?

    Hi, I just tried updates and was told that a new build, V1.04 is now available...at times like this, the servers become bogged down, so that may why you had trouble, it took a minute for the notice to come up. I don't know if this build will prompt you to uninstall the older one ((I am using 1.03 now)) or not, it did before, otherwise you have to uninstall the older copy and download the new...after which, there might be updates, even today.
