Why is ad aware se not updating
SAS seems to be pretty well thought of by a lot of folks. Please tell me why I should continue to use this application.-It's added a service ""C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware 2007\aawservice.exe" that's flagged for automatic (run on startup). Thought it only needs internet access when I tell it to fetch an upgrade. You can see the connections with Online Armor's Firewall Status display.My work box with the free version has had no updating problems. I changed it to manual.-Upon start, it doesn't go past the splash screen until it's phoned home. I found that my problem with updating Ad-Aware was due to me having elected to use Open DNS, which is a free DNS service.
Adware not only slows down your system, it can sometimes create a security risk.
It is easy enough to use and such, but never catches any viruses, not one.
It gives a nice boost to my computer so that I liked, however, the constant popup ads telling me about updates and wanting me to upgrade were god damn annoying.
