Microsoft AntiSpy-Are you having problems.

  spuds 09:46 28 Jun 2005

Installed the Microsoft AntiSpy Beta programme when it first came out, and did the recent new install which gave the longer expiry date.Since installing the replacement release I have had a number of problems!.

I do a regular update checks, and I seem to have a problem. Every update seems to tell me that a update is required from 5725 to 5729, and it commences to install this update. Checking the version afterwards, shows that I have 5729 installed, yet I am still getting the message and install from 5725 to 5729 after a new update check.[Even after computer reboot].

Another thing that I have noticed, is on a scan check, I get the all clear and nothing requires removal. Yet AdAware,SpyBot,a2 are all picking up things that Microsoft Anti cannot find.

I know that others have posted problems with the Microsoft product, and I was wondering if there is a problem with the new install,and others have found similar problems.

I have that problem with the updates. It used to happen with the old version, but cured itself. Now its come back again. Probably something that needs sorting within the beta.

5725 to 5729? Mine always tells me 5727 to 5729 I have the most uptodate version. I am pleased with it besides that fact.

It flagged up ist.istbar when adaware and spybot did not.

Not had any problems at all, which is new for me!

I had the same problem with the updates reverting back to 5725 after rebooting. I have since uninstalled and reinstalled the whole program and it now seems to be keeping 5729 without any problems.

Hope that helps!

Updating 5725 to 5729, same problem as the others. I have done a clean reinstall once but it didn't solve the problem.

NOD32 just works and does its job without any problems.

Now why did I write that. I meant to say that CounterSpy just works.
