MS Antispyware Update Problem

  rawprawn 11:34 10 Dec 2005

Suddenly it tells me it cannot connect to the internet to update, the only thing to have changed is I now have an ethernet connection. It is version 1.0.701 expires 31/07/2006. It is not blocked by ZA, and in diagnostics "Auto Updater" is shown as "Enabled" When I click on update I get the message "Warning unable to connect to the internet" All other auto update programs are working with no problems, any ideas?

It is probably still trying to use the old connection.

I can't find any setting for this in the program so I would try reinstalling it.Your new internet connection should be recognised then.

Good morning rawprawn, I have the same problem which I am sure is at their end. I have tried on two computers and get the same message. Will try to update later

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail.

Good morning to you, If you have the same problem, then I suspect you are right in that the problem is at their end.I will try again later, in the meantime I will leave the thread open and see if there are any more with this problem. Thanks.

Are you with Tiscali? I seem to be having intermittent problems finding their server, and I am beginning to suspect that is where the problem lies.

No I am with BT. I have other antispyware so I am not worried and will not change any settings as yet.
