when trying to update adaware I get "error retrieving update", I have clicked on configure and under proxy settings I have ticked the box 'use HTTP proxy', the address shown is 127.0.0.1 port 8080, going back and trying again gets me the same error message, after a search on these pages I downloaded the latest version from click here but still get the same problem, do I need to change the proxy address? can anyone help please, all help gratefully accepted

I would untick the use proxy button.

127.0.0.1 is a loopback address to your PC.

thanks VoG™ but when I open adaware, the box is unticked and that's where I 1st get the message, I just ticked the box to see if I could overcome the error message, I can still run the program, I just can't update it

I would un-install your Ad-Aware, Control Panel>Add/Remove programs, and then re-install it click here

If you are still using Adaware SE it is no longer supported and will not update.
You will need to download the new Adaware 2007
click here
