Ad-Aware always provided automatic updates in the past, and a friend who loaded the new version on their computer (Windows ME system) is not experiencing the same problem on their computer. Since they loaded the same new version, Ad-Aware continues to update the new definitions from the status screen. It's just not doing it on my computer; hence the message "error in retrieving update."
I am trying to find out why it is not doing the same thing on my computer. I have checked all the proxy settings against the usual default ones after using the installation wizard. Nothing seems wrong that way. so I am stumped about what more to try. I'm not that advanced, computer-tech-wise and so I'm a bit frustrated. The link that used to be on the Lavasoft site to the support forum doesn't seem to work; it just loops me back to their home page. They won't answer questions about the freeware version so I'm stuck. I guess I'm going to be forced to purchase their pay version in order to get any help with this.

It really seems to be a problem centered somehow with my computer system set up. I went to the submission site for notification from Lavasoft that you provided. I got a confirmation message after submitting, saying that I was already subscribed. So clearly, I should be able to update automatically through the "live webupdate" link, but it is just not happening.
Does anyone have a clue what might be interferring with the retrieval process of the updates? Someone wrote earlier on the forum about a problem their brother was having updating since he was disabled as the administrator on his computer. His brother, more computer saavy, was taking care of that role. Could this be the root of the problem I'm experiencing? I've never paid attention to "administrator's rights." It's never come up as a problem before, but perhaps the new version requires this to install. I haven't any idea how I would do this.
And, yes, I am running the version "build 1.06r1." That's what downloaded when I went to the freeware link provided by Lavasoft. Is there a problem with this? I noticed the difference in number, but assumed it was just that this is the number for the freebie build.
