Is this a new install?

The "definitions" are basically the instructions that tell AdAware how and where to look for spyware.  These need to be updated regularly to add definitions of new spywares and adwares - just like antivirus software definitions need to be updated for new viruses.  The program you installed came with definitions from 1034 days ago.  If you click "Yes" for "Would you like to check for updates now?" when you start the program, it should download the latest definitions to make AdAware up-to-date.

Do you have the latest versin of SE installed?  If not please download the new version.  Also is it actually updating the dats.  When you go to run the update what date does it give you and version #?

I know older versions of Adaware they have stopped supporting and it wont' allow you to update the dats.  It should say something when you try to update to this affect though.

Nothing to worry about, probably just a minor bug.

Have you checked your system time and date? It could be set to the future.

Check you are using the latest release of Ad Aware the actual application doesnt update to the latest releae build 1.05 I believe.
