Can't Update Ad-Aware Free Internet Security

November 19, 2010 at 02:18:52
Specs: Windows XP, 750
Please Help me.
Hi all,
I have installed adaware free 8.3.4 (internet security) and the last update to 8.3.5 was very slow. The problem is that the updating (to 8.3.5) was not concluded because it freezed blocked on the final part regarding "application extended definition:appliyng" for hours. The application is however updated? If not, how can I solve this problem?
I tried to disable the firewall (comodo) but the problem is the same.
Thak you in advance

adaware is old hat anymore. Why not just uninstall it and use some of the other freebies like Spybot S&D or Super-Anti Spy?
Malwarebytes is also much better.

I do not remove adaware because it is useful for removing malware that are not blocked by the AVG FREE antivirus. I use it without real time protection for 4 years and I did not have problems (never problems).
Could you be so kind to help me to understand what are happening during the updating of this new version ?

Thank You

I would dump AVG too, Avast is much better protection. It is probably AVG blocking it.
