    Hi!

    I know this is not a new problem but after installing v1.1 I could not download despite setting my proxy correctly

    Any help? Thanks

    :doubt:

    Did you get an error message, and if so, which one?

    regards.

    "Error Retrieving Update Info File", apparently... ;)

    Stoopid question: you are sure SB has your firewall's permission to phone out, I take it?

    Hi!

    Yes, my Outpost Firewall does allow SB outgoing activity.

    I even uninstalled, deleted, re-downloaded and re-installed SB but to no avail.

    BTW, how to download the dat manually if auto fails? Is it possible just to download the latest dat?

    Thanks

    I don't think there is.

    But why not post at the SpyBot forum?

    I'm sure that Patrick will rush to your rescue before you could even say "Error Retrieving Update Info File"

    I'm afraid I haven't yet solved this problem, but the updates are at least available manually.

    Go to the homepage,
    http://security.kolla.de/
    and look for the all-in-one download at the right bar. Disregard the date in the caption, the link points to the same file as the integrated update would download.
