How do I upgrade to the latest version of Ad-Aware?

The latest version of Ad-Aware is 9.x

It's easy to upgrade. If you have the Ad-Aware 8.x version installed, a splash screen will be opened when you start Ad-Aware. Click "Update now" to start the process.

Once the update has started, the latest software version will be automatically downloaded and updated. The Ad-Aware interface, tray icon and update manager will close during the process to apply all updates and reinitiate its services. Please be patient since this may take a few minutes. At the end of the process Ad-Aware will restart.

Other download options:

You can also download the latest version and install it directly. The installation file is available here or by logging in to the Lavasoft Support Center. Download and run the installation file to upgrade Ad-Aware to the latest version.

Note: The installation file for Ad-Aware (Ad-Aware90Install.exe) is the same for Free and Pro.
