AdAware won't update

In reply to: Ad-Aware SE1R54 14.07.2005

I'v tried to update AdAware at least a half dozen times this evening and keep getting the message that the downloaded update could not be read and to try again.Anyone else have this tonight?

That is a very common problem Fish when

In reply to: AdAware won't update

a new update is released. You could either wait until tomorrow or do them manually. Here are directions off the website to so them manually.
quote
Manual Installation: Unzip the archive, replace the existing file and restart Ad-Aware\Ad-Watch.
end quote

Make sure the program is closed when you do this. Just steer the download into the Lavasoft folder and unzip it like the above directions say and let it overwrite the old ones. When you open the program again, they should be there. Here is a direct download link.

Roddy.. in case anyone is having a problem..

In reply to: UPDATES - July 14, 2005

with "looping" definitions after applying the fix, I have found this email from Robin Walker at http://communities.microsoft.com/newsgroups/default.asp?ICP=spyware&sLCID=us
(It is under "Announcements")


Folks: you *MUST* empty your Temporary Internet Files (and select "Delete
all offline content") before attempting an MSAS definitions update.

I have just tried the 5755 updates while packet sniffing the network. If
you have (as I did) an earlier set of definitions still in your Temporary
Internet Files, then MSAS does not even bother asking the server for the
latest definitions: it usesd the stale version in the MSIE cache.

Once I cleared the Temporary Internet Files, the update to 5755 did the
server request properly, and the update to 5755 succeeded, permanently.

See my post "Why definition updates fail: possible reason" in this group on
28 June 2005.

I applied Robin's fix on Sunday

In reply to: Roddy.. in case anyone is having a problem..

and I also have everything cleaned out when I updated today. I had NO problems with defs repeating since last Sunday UNTIL I did todays. Now they are repeating on me again even though the .dll file is the correct size. One of these days Microsoft will fix it, Until then, I am going to NOT worry about this. Let Microsoft fix it.

Roddy, Repeating Here Also..On a Couple Of Machines So Far

In reply to: I applied Robin's fix on Sunday

Like you, I also did the "gcUnCompress.dll" replacement, thinking it would fix the issue. It did NOT. I still have the correct .dll and unfortunately, the 5735 definitions kept repeating. The only fix for me was to manually download the definitions from the links provided in earlier discussions and copy/paste them to the Microsoft Antispyware folder.

Hope this helps.

I will wait until they fix this via the updater

In reply to: Roddy, Repeating Here Also..On a Couple Of Machines So Far

which hopefully will happen eventually. I had THOUGHT that we had it fixed with the proper .dll but I guess not and I'm not going to go through hoops to update this program every time just because Micorsoft can't figure out how to fix it correctly. That is just how I feel about it. LOL

Belarc Advisor 7.0r new version

In reply to: UPDATES - July 14, 2005

You can choose ''run'' or ''open'' on the download and the installer will uninstall the old one and install the new one for you. As usual, I can't supply the link because it has the word ''Free'' in it and the forum spam filter will catch it. It's the first result on this Google search link.
http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rls=GGLG,GGLG:2005-28,GGLG:en&q=belarc

One more note on this. This was released AFTER the security definitions that I posted earlier in this thread today and there is no explanation on the website as to whether or not they were included in this new version or not so I downloaded this and then I redid the security defintions again even though I had done them this morning with the old version. I do NOT know of that is the correct way or not but it worked for me. The definitions link is on the bottom of this post here.

Thanks Roddy!

In reply to: Belarc Advisor 7.0r new version

I downloaded the new version and updated the same as you. In the absence of clarification I am unsure which is the latest... new version or update??? Probably no reason for concern as there may be a new version tomorrow if their trend of issuing new versions holds true. Wink

Will see!

You're welcome Glenn and I really

In reply to: Thanks Roddy!

don't know why they have been updating so often lately. The only changes that I have really noticed is the Windows Updates and a couple of other minor things that aren't even worth mentioning.
