    the update for spywareblaster 3.2 requires me to use a proxy (I am behind company proxy/firewall on a lan)

    what is the format to specify the username and password?

    ie. for internet explorer I provide
    proxy.address.com and port 1234 and username and password

    in winamp I specify it as
    proxy.address.com:1234@username:password

    tried that and it does not update and it will not permit me simply to specify a proxy address as the proxy requires a username and password

    I am behind a proxy when I am work and I have never had to add a user name\password....only my proxy address and the port #

    for example: abcproxy.xxx.com:8080

    Don't forget the :(colon)....between proxy address and port #


    You could also select the 2nd option....which would be the settings you have in IE.

    well ,that is very nice for *you* (and I mean that politely)

    you see, our proxy demands a user and password, for example I use Spybot S&D behind the proxy/firewall and the only way to get new updates from Spybot is to go to Advanced User, Settings, Settings and click on Use Proxy and User and Password

    my question remains and I already clearly explained that my proxy requires a user/pasw combination (I gave an example of what I must do to use Winamp)

    I also read the last note which stated that the user/pasw was not yet supported and thus I have a follow-up question, how can I manually update definitions?

    In that note you say you read....undoubtedly you missed the part where the programmer(Javacool) said...."The link posted above should have the correct manual downloading instructions."

    If you follow the below Sticky link that's prominetly displayed as part of this Forums list of threads....that's the link the programmer was referring to and it will clearly explain how to manually update the database files. You'll find it listed as item # 1....as part of the section SpywareBlaster Tips:
