Sygate Firewall - Updated Version & Windows update

  georgemac 17:42 01 Aug 2004

since I have installed the latest build of sygate personal firewall on 2 pc's, both would hang (windows update - not the pc) while windows update site was scanning for updates.

Turned off the firewall on both pc's and windows update worked again normally.

A bug in the latest version of sygate? Or is it only me who is having this problem?

Just checked on my home system with the new Sygate and it scanned OK.

What you've described happens sometimes with Win update & firewall sw. And it's not only Sygate that causes this problem. In the future, wait a while as Win update usually sorts itself out in a few minutes (from my experience), or disable Sygate whenever scanning for Win updates. G

I had a problem in that it couldn't be configured to allow Ad-aware access to the update site. It was fine with Spybot and all the others - guess it took a spite to Ad-aware for some reason. Reinstalled the previous version - everybody happy again.
