    Everytime I try to d/l the new AdAware deffinitions I get:'The downloaded deffinitions file could not be read, please update again'.

    No matter how many times I try this I get the same message!

    Any suggestions? Otherwise I will just have to reinstall it.

    thanks,

    S.

    thanks for that snowbound. I d/l the new deffinitions manually and it worked fine. I just hope the next deffinitions work ok.

    thanks again,

    S.

    Hopefully everyone will find that the Definition File update issues are past -- ast least according to SteveJ from Lavasoft:

    In the event you have a problem at the next update, this link may be a better one for getting the zip file: http://download.lavasoft.de.edgesuite.net/public/defs.zip
