    "Still Good & Bad"

    August 22, 2008   |   By Jalice888

    Version: Ad-Aware SE Definition File SE1R280 (08/19/2008)

    Pros

    This product works very well finding bad Adware and much more so with Spyboy Search & Destroy my computer is great aswell as many that I remove Limewire for opening Firewalls then these two programs clean the crap out.

    Cons

    DON'T get Ad-Aware 2008 since it bogs your computer near as bad as Trojans & Adware, AVG does the same too! They make it more complicated to update, a common scam of most software manufacturers using any trick to scam a lot more money from people

    Summary

    This version only has the hassle of no automatic updating so you have to go to your 'Lavasoft file' in your 'C Drive' under 'Program files' and in here open 'Ad-Aware SE Personal' then remove the 'Defs Ref' file. Now if you open Adware SE on the desktop often you can do 'Updates' from the normal system but sometimes they send a file like this one that fails so your only hope is to download it to a temporay window from here and then you have to copy that 'Defs Ref' file then open your 'C Drive' till you have got the 'Adaware SE Personal' file where you paste it on top of that file so it goes inside it (no idea why mine keeps saying it's a 17-05-2008 file updated now on 19-08-2008 but seems like the old file).

    Updated on Aug 22, 2008

    I also forgot I thought i'd take another look at Version Pro for aut updating this but still they want regular money to do this and when I tried that before it was useless as never found the Updates it said were there and when I searched none were available - avoid that scam too!!!

    "Invalid Corrupt error message pops up"

    August 21, 2008   |   By winterskye

    Version: Ad-Aware SE Definition File SE1R280 (08/19/2008)

    Pros

    Usually I am able to update my Ad-Aware with CNET's latest definitions files with absolutely no problems at all...not this time.

    Cons

    I have attempted to download this updated 08/11/2008 def's file twice now and each time the downlaod gets to the 2.93 MB point a message pops up stating "the file is invalid or corrupt."
