    Question Ad-aware help

    I use a program called Ad-Aware, for spy-ware removal. I noticed on lavasoft's web site, www.lavasoftusa.com , that you can also download a program called refupdate to keep your reference files up to date. The problem is, it doesn't include a proxy support and I'm behind a company firewall. Does anyone know how to get these reference updates without using this refupdate program or if someone has figured out a solution around the proxy problem. Many thanks.
    Regards,
    Geno

    What do you mean it doesn't include proxy support? I just downloaded and installed the update from behind my proxy, and it worked fine for me. I think your problem lies elsewhere, but I couldn't tell you where, unless your company firewall maybe blocks the port that the update program uses.

    If your company firewall doesn't allow refupdate to connect,you can go to the downloads section at lavasoft and manually download the current signature updates yourself,after downloading place the new reflist.sig file in the lavasoft adaware directory,first saving the old reflist.sig file,renaming it reflist.bak,next time you start adaware it will use the new sig file.
