hi,i would like sygate firewall to be checked automatically for new versions as they come available so have 'checked' in the internet update box but have never received a pop up or dialogue box telling me a new version is available! have always had to hit the 'check now' button to receive my updates, does anyone know where i'm going wrong?

Tools, opitons, updates, automatically check for new versions.

That works for me and seems to be what you have done? Don't know where you went wrong with it.

New versions of sygate are very infrequent - it's not like an AV program which needs updates every day or so.

So maybe there just hasn't been an update yet.

I use Sygate, and it's always a long time in between updates.

I am also looking for the next update, the present version has a bug that prevents windows ME from shutting down

i've managed to download updates manually so there have been updates its just that the computer can't flag them up when a new one arrives,thought that would have been a basic!

sattman I've just downloaded v.5.6 build 2808 onto my ME PC (my present contract with Outpost is coming up for renewal so I'm giving Sygate free a try) and have not experienced any shutdown problem.
