    Does anyone know if and where I can download all the updates and save them to disk?
    I'm cleaning out a friends computer and have no net access.
    Thanks.

    Hi, You may run into the problem of having too old a build of one or the other programs...the best way to do it would be to install the newest of each program, and update then.

    You would need to uninstall the older copies if any are installed on that pc you are fixing....

    SpyBot and AdAware had older versions, you should uninstall ADAware 6 or SpyBot 1.3- if the bad pc has those installed now! they will not help. The latest versions are AAW SE personal edition 1.06

    and SpyBot 1.4

    Install the newer copies you download now and burn to disc and add the latest update files to each!

    If they do have these newest versions of SB and AAW...just add the reference files to each as below.



    Yes, you can manually update those programs from here:

    http://majorgeeks.com/downloads31.html

    Go to this for SpyBot> http://majorgeeks.com/Spybot_Search_and_Destroy_Detection_Update_d3957.html

    Ad-Aware SE:

    http://majorgeeks.com/Ad-aware_SE_referencefile_d726.html

    It shows you how to do each one.

    You can post the Hijackthis log here if you want to verify that something should be done before using any other tools like AAW or SpyBot...sometimes there are things to do before using those!
