Are you sure that the firewall isn't blocking it?

I put software in question (ACDSee) IP address in trusted sites, will now do updates but when I try download from site it states you must be connected to internect to use this function. I have now contacted ACDSee for more information any suggestions welcome. Thanks

Disable your firewall briefly and try to update again.If this works you need to configure your firewall or uninstall and reinstall the firewall software.
It could be a matter of someone blocking the permissions to update.

that you can view web pages via internet explorer but there is certain software on your PC that you can't update online. If so what software is it?
