    it's not the only update problem they've had lately, for some weeks auto update has been locking up Boclean on some computers, 2 of mine have been cursed by the lock up a few times, a symptom is the sys tray icon stays green.

    A New Version is coming out TUESDAY! This should fix a number of your update problems..


    [/QUOTE/]General:
    --------
    Changes to code for Vista SP1 and XP SP3 compatibility

    Fixes and enhancements to Excluder:
    -----------------------------------
    1. Fixed incorrect saving/disappearing of icons for excluded programs
    2. Fixed "always on top" problem which sometimes obscured display screen
    3. Quicker access to excluder upon warning of changed or missing excluded item
    4. Better explanation of why excluded item may have changed and instructions
    5. Now remembers display mode and any sortings of display in excluder
    6. Restart of BOClean no longer required after changes in excluder

    Fixes and enhancements in manual and automatic updater:
    -------------------------------------------------------
    1. Fixed memory leak which caused BOClean hang after a few weeks continuous use
    2. WEB downloading instead of FTP to resolve firewall connectivity problems
    3. Removed "rollback" button with automatic re-download if download is corrupted
    4. Added new traybar icon status indications (downloading/success/problem)
    5. Added detailed messages to manual updater notifying of problems and solutions
    6. Downloads automatically checked upon downloading rather than at load time

    Fixes and enhancements to BOClean itself:
    -----------------------------------------
    1. Faster access to excluder and manual update checking
    2. Clearer, more specific alert messages and recommended actions
    3. Detected items must be either deleted or excluded or BOClean will re-detect
    4. Status icons for updater now visible on traybar when automatic updates occur
    5. Spread scanning to reduce CPU spiking with NAV/KAV/NOD32 antiviruses

    Fixes and enhancements to BOClean installer:
    --------------------------------------------
    1. Clarified first screen to indicate need for "clean install" and instructions
    2. Automatically sets requirements for administrator mode and installs or complains
    3. Permissions for databases, reports and configuration automatically established
    4. Uninstall now configured to require administrator permission to remove all[/QUOTE/]

    Thats good. I might go back to using it again. Had too many problems with it after Comodo took over. I had still run Kevins version as long as I could but when it came down to needing the new version I tried it and had problems so dropped it. It had stopped a lot of baddies for me over the years and I kind of hated not having it but thats the way it goes. Hopefully this time all problems will be fixed.

    Never had issues with updates (other than any immediately fixed by KMcA) still have faith in Kevin and his expertise.
    Really good to see him posting and this update.
    I'll be giving it a run.

    Hi guys :)

    - The update problem was in fact a server problem, and not the fault of Comodo, but I will spare you the details.

    - All Comodo BOClean versions are Kevins versions, he is responsible for all the coding.

    And yesterday I got a message from Kevin that BOClean 4.26 is still sceduled for tomorrow, so lets keep our fingers crossed :thumb:

    Greetz, Red.

    This is typical upgrade forecasting. A month or two indeed. :D

    Thanks Red for keeping us informed.

    Please let's give Kevin and crew the time needed for releasing the new version!

    I just only started this thread to warn users for a possible update problem on [4 April 2008]. That was all.
    It has served its purpose now. I wonder whether it would be a good idea to close this thread now and start a new one when the new version is released. But I leave that decision ofcourse to the mods/admins.
