Why can't I update CW Shredder?

  CurlyWhirly 22:11 20 Jul 2004

I have recently installed CW Shredder a few days ago and ever since I have been trying to search for updates but EVERY time I do so I have the following message 'Unable to retrieve CW Shredder update information. The server might be unavailable , try again later'!
Does anyone else have this problem as well?
Is this program FREEWARE or do you have to pay to get updates?

It is freeware. Have you used a firewall to block access?

Try downloading a new version.

When you say try downloading a new version do you mean that I should reinstall my current version (v1.59.1) or is there a newer version than this?
I got the link a few days ago from a member of this forum so that the thread that I got it from was only a few days old so do you know if there is a later version than this?

p.s. It is nothing to do with my firewall as I have even tried disabling it temporarily to see if this is the cause but it isn't.

It is not much use if it isn't going to get updated!
I may as well uninstall it?

I also think that the server is down as I can't access either of the links that you gave me!

Cheers for your link to The Register website article.
I have bookmarked it on my favourites list.
