    I have about 6 more days left in my trial of Counterspy and the last update I received is #182 on June 2nd. In fact I only remember getting maybe 2 updates in just over 3 weeks. My old reliable Adaware seems to update every 4-5 days and I have noticed that Spysweeper spits out updates every 3-5 days. Is this normal with Counterspy?... :rolleyes:

    Just wait for them to issue new updates, not all anti-spyware products update at the same time.
    Each organisation/company has its own updating schedule/timetable.

    Their updates is one per 2 weeks.
    Always tries to enter to the start-up programmes.
    If u select auto-update on start-up, the window that appears stucks

    I trialed CS and overall, I like it and it's interface.

    I found that I had less FP's than MSAS. Still deciding on whether or not to purchase it tho. :doubt:

    I rather like it too, it seems to run smoothly and is rather light on resources. But this less than infrequent update things bothers me. June 2nd was the last update while all the other spyware apps keep updating right along...

    I no sooner post this and note another Spysweeper update at 6:13 PM..good grief... :eek:
