Got a notice that an updated new version of Ad-Aware
Personal se 1.04 was available. Downloaded opened the
Lavasoft.de page and downloaded from the Cnet link. Install
removed the previous 1.03 version. The scan froze at about
38,000 files and the application stopped responding.
Uninstalled and downloaded version 1.04 from MajorGeeks in
case there was a corrupt file at downloads.com. Same
problem.
Uninstalled 1.04 and reinstalled version 1.03.

Have sent email to lavasoft general@lavasoft.de

Yes, Randy sent another note that there is apparently a problem with the
new build. I'm holding off on using it until I hear it is OK.

Mine from Major Geeks works fine too. There are lots of posts about it in
the Lavasoft forums.

Jim,

I just downloaded it from Major Geeks. It installed and scanned 135,000
files on my C: and D: drives - through to completion.

Go figure!

I guess it may be a problem for some configurations and not
others. When I ran it it seemed that it didn't really scan
to the 38,000 files, it just seemed to get there real fast
and then stop. I'll try it again in a few days. Another
poster said there was a pretty good thread on the lavasoft
forum, I'll check that out.

Tried downloading from 2 different places including MajorGeeks & both
did the same thing... Went back to 1.03 as well... Let us know if you
hear any reason as to why. Gimpy

that isn't the problem, have run checkdisk with full scans,
it is a hot topic on the Lavasoft forums. They added some
new scan engine changes and that is where it seems to be
getting hung up.

There may be some interaction with installed software or
user settings, which would explain the randomness of the
failure, but all failures being basically the same at the
same point.

Seems to be a common problem, it is a hot topic on the
Lavasoft forums. But not all systems are having the
problem. It may be a problem with users or software
conflicts.

If yours works, you can try full system scan or deep scans,
or perhaps some other setting to see if it freezes. But
just like SP2, most people didn't have a problem, but those
that do...

Downloaded the new version and scanned all drives without a
problem. It seemed to pause in some folders and with DLLs
but there was still hard drive activity as shown by the
light. The file count resumed within a few seconds.
Partitions scanned 4, files scanned 193995 detections as
expected, 20 recent file used lists, all critical items
removed with previous versions.

There is also a new version of the program: Ad-Aware SE
that is even faster and with the add-ins is even better.
I installed it last week and have had no problems at all.

I downloaded the fixed 1.04 from MajorGeeks this morning
also. It ran fine on my XP machine so I also downloaded
(updated from 1.03) it to the old 433 Celeron running 98 and
that also worked just fine.

I ran a full scan and had no problems, I did find some bugs that v.6
couldn't see :)

The site works for me. Although it is pretty funny because it says my
version of Spy Sweeper is up-to-date and offers me the chance of
upgrading. It's funny because this machine runs Linux, I looked at the
site with Mozilla 1.7, and naturally I'm not running Spy Sweeper on
Linux!

If you can't get to the site, you might want to check your hosts files
to make sure nothing is in there except 127.0.0.1 (and anything you put
there yourself).
