What does the 'Authenticity verified' check in the 'Update Status' screen Indicate?

* A green checkmark indicates that the definition file (core.aawdef) is valid and correctly downloaded.
* A red cross indicates that the file is either outdated or corrupt.

Note: Ad-Aware will find the definitions to be outdated if the file has not been updated within the number of days selected in the Web Update settings.

Click the "Update" button in the "Main status" window to update and download a new definitions file. If this doesn't work you should delete "core.aawdef" located in (C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware 2007 or C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware). Then click the "Update" button in the "Main status" window to update and download the definitions file.

Restart Ad-Aware.
