Spyware blaster updates not working!!

  lahorie 22:20 26 May 2004

Hi All

I've tried updating spywareblaster but i always receive the error message " server gave an unrecognised response".

I have checked on the spwareblaster.net website and it says the latest version is 5/18/2004 where i have 4/7/04.

i have tried over the last 6 days with no luck.

Any suggestions?

you can do this:

"I would like to perform manual updates - is there a way I can do so?

Yes there is - simply download the following five files and overwrite the ones currently in your SpywareBlaster directory (C:\Program Files\SpywareBlaster by default):

1. click here. 2. click here. 3.
click here. 4.
click here. 5.
click here "

Have downloaded version 3.1 from 3 sites but on trying to instal get "code 4 error while unpacking program". Search on this seems to show a general fault, anyone any ideas?

Hi Guys

Yes i have ver 3.1, and have tried manual update with same error. i have uninstalled and reinstalled with no luck.

Crossbow 7, thanks for the links, the first 5 don't bring anything up but the source one works, i will try this.

Thanks everyone.

Hi lahorie, The first five links are all direct downloads & for some reason they do not work, so you're right - sorry.

When you try to d'load from the Source page I gave you above, the Windows 'File Download' dialogue box appears & you should be able to d'load as usual. After d'loading the 5 files cut & paste them into your Program Files\SpywareBlaster folder. A warning will come up if you want to replace the files or not. Click on 'Yes' for all 5. After doing this open SpywareBlaster & see if it now has 2942 items in it's database & dated 5/18/04.

If you've already done this please let us know how you got on. G
