If you are using Windows Firewall click on START - CONTROL PANEL - WINDOWS FIREWALL - from left pane select "Allow a program or feature through Windows firewall" - scroll down and find the application (ie Superantispyware) - put tick in box - click OK
Do you get a specific error code when trying to update Malawarebytes? I had a problem a week ago, and also a spurious note in the bottom right hand corner claiming my W7 was illegal. I think it was a virus. Luckily I had a very recent ATI clone that cured it (formatting the C drive in the process) . Hope you find the answer.
Hi, well from malwarebytes i get the message 'Update failed. Make sure you are connected to the internet and the firewall is set to allow Malwarebytes' Anti-malware to access the internet' and the same for SuperAntiSpyware (obviously with the 'Malwarebytes' replaced with SuperAntiSpyware'! Any other ideas please?
