    Re: Ad-Aware minor update, to 1.04

    And I still don't "get it" with the plugins. I opted to NOT uninstall them this time, and they got blasted away regardless. With the previous update I let the installer "uninstall" them, with the same end result - they disappear and have to be reinstalled... strange <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>.

    Perhaps it's like Firefox. The old plug-ins don't work with the newer version, so their deleted. I didn't see instructions this time whether to uninstall the old version first, but I'm going to do that anyhow. What plug-ins do you use anyway?

    Re: Ad-Aware minor update, to 1.04

    Well, I figured it might be handy to have a hex dump built in, but I've never had cause to use it. I also have LSP explorer, which I never bothered with either, until I saw some recent threads on LSP exploits. This is new territory for me, so I don't know much about it yet.

    Re: Ad-Aware minor update, to 1.04

    Thanks for the information. I haven't used any plug-ins. I guess I'll wait & see if I'm really missing something before I try them. I'm always a little wary about "improving" something that appears to be working. I have a friend in the construction industry who always told me "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"! Wish I'd listen to him more often. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
