You can still update it manually (NOT via built-in updater).
To do this you'll need a Winzip or other zip file "unzipper".

Oopps! Sorry about the caps! I'll have to find time to change that in my files.
Hello ~ We all know that Ad-Aware (Lavasoft SE Personal/free) is one of The Most Popular AdWare Removal Programs out there. Why is it that Every Time-6 times or more! It Fails? (repeating the same behavior expecting different results... you know...) The Download Manager goes along its merry 2+hour way, and then tells me, "Error! Files Invalid or Corrupt." or "Not a Valid Win32 Application." (I've tried to Save it in Program files instead; seems Logical) I've tried it from CNet (Love Ya) also from the Publisher - always same results: No Ad-Aware. Now that I've Deleted my old-old-old one, I am barenaked without it, and it was Always able to find some MalThingorother, even without any updates. Why is it that Everyone Else has this program But Not Me??? In fact, I've had similar failures with *nearly* all other attempted downloads. Could this be, by any chance, a problem with Windows Installer??? I am still muchly "a dummie" - but getting Ad-Aware seems like it oughta be a cinch. If anyone can give me help, I would be Eternally Grateful. Methinks there is a lot of adware junk out there which needs to be caught where my other malware catchers don't (Spybot, Spyware Terminator, Norton [no comments from The Peanut Gallery please, and Windows-Whatever-It-Does). Basically, I want Ad-Aware, and it just won't happen. Whyso? Do you know? If so, and can give me Help please use compassionately easy step-by-step instructions, as I really don't know much about some things, and more about other things. Thank You in advance, CNetters; it's been literally "bugging" me for months! I keep trying and it keeps failing. Gotta be a Better Way. Thanx. ginni aka ladytrickster p.s. If I Uninstall Windows Installer then Re-Install it, is it gonna be a snake biting its own tail? Needing the Installer to Install? har. I think I didn't have this downloadng problem before It came along... my memory fails me too...
