    I think I inadvertently blocked updates of SpywareBlaster and I don't know how to undo that. Can anyone guide me? Thanks!!

    Hi jericoliz.

    First, a welcome to the forums. :)

    Now, I think a bit more information would be in order to try to help.

    1: By blocking, do you have 'any' idea of what you did?
    It could be any of the several following reasons:
    Firewall Alert and you hit Deny?
    You changed some settings in the Updates/Options window of SWB?
    Did you try to use Automatic Updates without being a Registered/Made Donation user? [Can only use manual updating unless you donated and got registered]
    Somehow a line was added to your HOSTs files with 127.0.01 being the address which is your own and SWB cannot 'see' their server?
    You have some other security app blocking SWB for some reason.
    If behind a Router, somehow blocked in there?

    Those could be the main ones.

    One thing, try this. Open SWB/Updates/Options and see what's checked.
    Can you remember if you went to this. Try another option.

    or simply, the server was temporarily down at the precise moment you tried and got an error!!! I just tried now and it worked for me at time of posting.

    Cheers, TAS

    PS: This post will probably be moved to the SpywareBlaster forum threads, just follow the link in this same thread, ok! ;)
