Is There A New Virus That Blocks Ad-aware Updates?

It goes to 5% and says Error Retrieving Update. If I am persistant and click on it about 50 times, it will (sometimes) update, but not always. I am wondering if there's some virus out there to block Ad-Aware updates. Maybe someone attacked Lavasoft... what do I know. All I know is I can't update this thing anymore, and it's annoying. And frightening. Help?
I am having the same problem. The only way to update your definition file is to download the new definition file and unzip the file into C:Program Files/Lavasoft/Ad-Aware SE Personal/ folder. You will continue to receive the "You haven't updated your files in 5 days" message.

The updated software (free version) is at... (if you have paid version, then open a problem on that area of this site)
This worked fine for me, and I was in the 5% update failure boat for weeks. No problems now.
