I have Ad-Aware SE Professional and I know that it hasn't updated for a while now. Today I ran the program and it actually updated. Is Ad-Aware SE getting support again? or is there something malicious going on.

I got the free version of Ad-Aware SE and all the updates ref files I have downloaded going back to the 15th have been Corrupted def files.

But just for reason you said you got a update I clicked on the update and I be darn if it did not update.
But it is a old update of SE1R210 27.12.2007.

Update successfully downloaded and installed.

I closed Ad-Aware and opened it again and then get popup saying def are 148 days old and ask if I would like to update.
I said yes but then it says No updated components available.

I made a copy of the defs.ref and defs.ref.old files. Loaded the newer defs dated 22.05.2008 and it is still bad
So went back to the SE1R210 27.12.2007 because I had nothing newer to turn back to because I over wrote the ones the other day without backup.

Try this link but I can't guarantee it still works. Well the link does but maybe not the procedure.

This goes to the SE updates. Top right hand corner.

I do NOT use Lavasoft Ad-Aware and do NOT work for Lavasoft. I just monitor the Forum from time to time.

A quick check through your other posts reveals that you run Win 98SE.

If I'm right, the last Defs.file that will work with your OS is SE1R247 13.05.2008.
XP Pro SP3; ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite v8.0.059; WinPatrol Plus v15.9.2008.5; SpywareBlaster v4.1;
Spybot S&D v1.6.0.31 (TeaTimer Disabled); Piriform CCleaner v2.15.815; MBSA x86 v2.1; WICU rubbish;
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe; AMD Athlon Newcastle 64 Processor 3500+; Sata RAID 1 (Mirror) 70Gb Raptors;
Corsair XMS3200 2GB 2x1024MB DDR CAS2; Asus Probe II, and Cool n'Quiet enabled in BIOS.
