    Yeah I have gotten that error too lately. No problem if you manually download the .ref file though.
    I'm guessing they have issues with their update servers.

    Hmm.. Seems like the manual download I linked to is a little old.
    I just tried updating from Ad-Aware and I actually got through to an update :p

    It finally worked for me. I guess their servers were either down or overloaded. Paid subs. probably get priority anyway.

    Try
    1- make sure that is no program is running or scanning(close all running programs). then try update and wait a while. try again and again if necessary
    2-and/or delete defs file from adaware folder and open adaware> error will show click ok> check for update
