Hi, i have tried to download the new version of the popular anti-spyware
program Ad-aware from download.com yet i when i click the download link using
either Firefox or IE the file isn't downloaded. With IE a popup window opens
with the title bar saying "ftp://ftp.download.com - Cannot find server".
After a short while i get an alert saying the attempt to connect to
ftp.download.com timed out. Any ideas what is causing this? I've never had
any problems in the past downloading from the web.
Thanks for any help and suggestions

Try these cleaning tools. Always check for updates for each one before
running.

See if you can get it at this site.
