Updates for MS Anti Spyware

  mermaid25 16:40 17 May 2005

After having problems with spyware (another thread, very long...but resolved)I had installed M S Anti Spy, I already had spy bot , Adaware, A2 spywareblaster,and norton internet security.

Have been checking for udates and have got all of the above updated, except MS Anti Spy....The auto updater says it is active , but I have not had any updates since it was installed on 29th April. when I try to check manually for updates it says it cannot connect to the internet... even when I am connected.

Are there any updates, does anyone know?

On a similar note, when I set the auto updater to active when It reverts to inactive when I close it to my takbar, so i have to manually update, as it is a beta version I just took it as being a bug.

To eliminate the possibility of an incorrect setting do the following: -

1. Open MS Anti Spyware
2. Click Help
3. Click About
4. Click Diagnostics
5. Go through the list and check that everything is setup correctly. There are numerous items that refer to the updating process.

Is it possible to copy updates onto say a flash drive to install on another computer?

Updates take some time on dial up but I have broadband at work which I could use
