Spywareblaster 3.2 will not install correctly

  User-C482BBE1-3EDD-4A99-BEDC0BD6B59295E3 13:47 14 Nov 2004

I have been using Spywareblaster for some time but suddenly I could not get an update. It continuously shows a database loaded 7/7/04 with 3022 items in database. I have even uninstalled the software / shredded the original downloaded .exe file and removed the folder from my hard drive. Subsequent download of Spywareblaster3.2 ( 14/11/04 )shows exactly the same database information and also refuses to update. I am concerned that some malicious code may have gotten into the registry to prevent Spywareblaster from operating.

I would be very grateful for any advice on this.

Thanx Pootie

Did u disable the protection before uninstalling
3.1? if not try reinstalling it then enable/diable all protection then uninstall and install 3.2.

Thanx Acolyte

You gave me an idea . I disabled all protection in SWB 3.2 and then went to manual update,it worked perfectly. There are numerous disscussions on this problem at the main SWB forums none of which offer this workaround . I think I'll go and post this option
