Microsoft AntiSpyware - wont connect

  johndrew 14:35 10 Dec 2005

My old Microsoft AntiSpyware (expires 31.12.05) started to warn me that it couldn`t connect to the internet. Thinking it was time to update I downloaded the updated version (expires 31.7.06) and installed that.

When I try to check for updates I still get the message on the AutoUpdater screen:
"Warning, could not connect to the Internet!"

Has anyone else got this or is aware of the problem and a cure?

Many thanks. My search failed to pick this thread up. I`ll shut this down as it`s a known problem.

P.S. I can`t get the script on the MS site as my browser (IE or Firefox) wont allow it. Is there a way around this?

I've seen 3 PCs today with this problem (including mine). Must be a problem at their end.

Same here!. Obviously a problem at the MS end.

All OK now, and has been for a few days.
