A few days ago I noticed some issues with Ad Aware. I couldnt update or scan. I tried reinstalling but it didnt help at all. I was having some random system shut downs, slow laggyness and the event viewer said that Ad Aware was having fatal errors. So today, I ran Killdisk and shredded my entire hard drive. I then reinstalled Windows Xp Home. I only have the base programs on the pc right now from Windows (fully updated) as well as Firefox, ZoneAlarm, and Est Nod 32 Anti virus. I installed Ad Aware fresh from download.com and I am still having the same issues. It is version 8.2.0.
Basically, when I try to update it just sits there for a long time and then an error message pops up "Connection error, check your settings. (Errorcode: -2)." When I try to scan I get another error message and the program closes.
I tried the fixes listed here: http://www.lavasofts...showtopic=27351
None of that has worked. I also tried using Nod 32's "Temporarily Disable Anti virus" function to see if it was the two programs not playing well together, but that didnt work either. Im extremely frustrated at this point.
Is there a way to manually update the program to 8.2.2 or whatever the newest version is? Might that help the problems Im experiencing?
Thank you for any help!
