Ad-Aware SE Personal - Update Problem
« on: August 27, 2006, 11:15:47 PM »
Hi. Apologies if this has been dealt with elsewhere, although I have run a search and couldn't find an answer.

I'm running the freeware version 1.06r1 on WinXP(SP2) and a while ago I started having issues with my online updates. When I run the update tool it finds and shows me the latest update, I click "download and install" and it downloads it. But when it attempts to install it I get an error message that says:

Quote
The downloaded definitions could could not be read, please update again.

I click "OK" and it goes on to give me the normal "Webupdate completed" message, however my definitions file has obviously not been updated. The trouble is, no matter how many times I do it I get the same message.

I have also tried waiting for later definition file releases in the hope that it's a one-off problem, but to no avail (this has been going on for maybe six months). I have tried reinstalling the programme, and also redownloading the installation file - although all the latter has done is caused me to lose all all the post-release definitions I downloaded before I started having this problem.

Any tips? Even if it's just a way to manually download and install the updates. Any assistance much appreciated!

Ha. Just after posting this I managed to find an old topic. Sorry for bothering everyone - I'll try everything suggested there first.
