Ad-Aware is the latest version of Lavasoft's industry leading anti-spyware solution. Ad-Aware helps you combat the growing threats and latest advancements of malware and malicious spyware.
Ad-Aware protects you from spyware that secretly takes control of your computer, resulting in aggressive advertising pop-ups, sluggish computer activity and even identity theft through stolen private information. We give you the tools to detect hazardous content on your computer, clearly identify their threat level, and then give you the ability to remove unwanted content, so that your private information remains right where it should - under your control.
In some circumstances, such as if your proxy settings are not configured properly, you may not be able to update the Detection Database by using Web Update.
You can manually update the Detection Database with the latest Definitions File by following the steps below:
- Close Ad-Aware.
