Auto Updates Failing - Firefox, Adobe, iTunes

  Chris-347369 10:46 09 Mar 2008

Hi All,

I have a bit of a strange problem. All the applications on my Vista rig that have the ability to update keep having those updates fail.

The apps include Adobe AIR, Adobe Reader, iTunes, Firefox extensions.

Normally what happens is the app says it wants to auto update, I click the UAC box to confirm it can and then when I return there is normally some sort of message to say that the application has failed to update.

Has anyone else experienced this?

it could be a firewall problem - you need to enter your firewall setup page and either make them exceptions in windows firewall or allow in zone alarm.
