    LavaSoft's Disappearing Act

    From Fred Langa's newsletter -

    <hr>Lavasoft--- maker of the excellent (and free) Ad-Aware anti-spyware tool has been having lots of trouble with its web site lately. Originally hosted in Germany, LavaSoft moved their main site to a US-based host, but things went bad in December. Many, many readers looking for updated spyware-detection lists were frustrated when the lavasoftusa" site went dark.

    Ironically, the original German site--- plus two US mirror sites--- all continued to work fine. Only the main site was affected, but most people don't know about the alternative sites. If you're an Ad-Aware user (and many thousands of you are!), you may want to note the *four* main ways to access Lavasoft. The main site is working again (as I write this) but in the future, if it goes dark, just try one of the others.<hr>

    Main Site:
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.lavasoftusa.com>http://www.lavasoftusa.com</A>

    Mirrors:
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://lavasoft.de>http://lavasoft.de</A>
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://lavasoftusa.net>http://lavasoftusa.net</A>

    Also for everyone's information, there is an add-in available for Ad-Aware that can check for updated signature files, download, and install them if necessary. I believe the latest build I found was 5.62.

    The <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.lavasoftusa.com>http://www.lavasoftusa.com</A> site worked for me (albeit very slow).
