Unable to update SpywareBlaster

  Skeletor 10:35 09 Nov 2005

I've been using SpywareBlaster for 2 or 3 years now without any problems...until this morning. I started the program, which appears fine, but when I click "Check for updates" nothing happens. Windows Task Manager shows it as "Not responding". I've checked my Firewall and it seems ok (SpywareBlaster "Allow"). I've tried uninstall/reinstall, but still no joy. I also run the following:

Complete Internet Cleanup
Norton A/V
Spybot S&D
SpywareBlaster (when it's working)

Any help much appreciated


Win XP Home

Thanks ACOLYTE. Sorry for wasting your time.

I've never known SpywareBlaster to take so long, and with Task Manager stating "Not Responding" I was sure something was wrong. Anyway, everything's OK now.

BTW Where's the "Resolved" button?

FWIW not sure about the new style forum.
