Spyware Blaster Update

  Pine Man 11:29 11 Mar 2005

There is a new update to Version 3.3.


I have followed the installation instructions for downloading the new version of SpywareBlaster which appears to install correctly but every time I try to update it I get the following message

Error Connecting To Update Server

There was an error getting the update information file from the server. The server may be temporarily unavailable, or there may be a conflict with firewall software installed on your PC. The update information file may have also gotten corrupted during download.

I have ‘Options’ set to Use a direct connection to the internet.

I have also tried downloading the new version of SpywareBlaster from different sites.

There does not appear to be a conflict with firewall software and a check shows no spyware or malware on my PC.

Has anybody else had this problem yet?

It installed fine for me, did you shut down the original before you installed ver 3.3?

Just installed it ok. Previous version had to be disabled and uninstalled first.
