    Hi Ronjor,

    I have read the thread you refer to but there is no answer about how to solved my problem :-(

    I have download the new version before the autoupdate check for it but, even there, the auto update didn't indicate any upgrade even if I have version 1.0.0.614 instead of version 1.0.0.615o_O

    What is the problem and how can I solve it?

    I have no clue why you can't see the new update :doubt:

    Another thing you can try that has worked in the past is to make sure Enable automatic updates is enabled....and set the Check for Updates time to one hour ahead of what it is when you are making the selection. It should then let you know there is an update....follow everything exactly as it says....don't miss a step....and see what happens.

    If that does not work....you could try the below suggestion.

    Hello Atomas31,

    I had all the same problems with ver 615 you describe, here's what i did to & tried all the above suggestions, here's what i did:

    1. add/remove programs remove MSAS
    2. I ran Registry Mechanic 5, which reported 40 problem from MSAS removal
    allowed RM5 to fix all.
    3. used windows explorer > program files > ms antispyware (deleted folder,
    and all its contents).
    4. Reinstalled (615) & everything is Fine!

    Good Luck

    Hi,
    I have downloaded version 1.0.615 after shutting down and uninstalling version 614. I used regseeker to clean registry and deleted the folder that was left. The problem I am having is that if I try to update manually I get a message that says to the effect warning could not connect to the internet. I use Zone Alarm 4.5 home and have MSAS listed as trusted. Of course all my other programs can connect to the internet. I downloaded the program on the 18th so I have the current definitions.
    Someone stated that you can ignore the date of last update as long as you have the current version (5733 for now). Is this true? Are some getting updates without the date changing? Is anyone having the auto update working even though they can't update manually?

    Here's the current version of MSAS

    Microsoft AntiSpyware Version: 1.0.615
    This version expires on: 12/31/2005
    Spyware Definition Version: 5735 (7/20/2005 4:29:41 AM)

    You should have the above information, if you don't have the above version, and it won't go beyond v 5733 by attempting to manually update it, then I would suggest going to microsoft.com and re-downloading the installer and re-installing again.

    After you download it, you can check to see if it's the most current version by right clicking on the installer, and selecting 'properties'. Then click the 'Digital Signatures' tab and it should say the Time Stamp is Wednesday July 13, 2005. If you have an eariler date you may need to re-download the installer. If you have this version already your all set to reinstall.

    Hope you get it working.



    Chaos16,

    I don't see anything listed in your sig that could be conflicting with MSAS. It seems just about everyone is having problems with MSAS at this time, so don't blame any of your current programs as the cause. It's MSAS that has the problem. I would suggest a re-install if you have the latest version of the installer- see above comments.

    Best of luck.

    Longroad, re-downloaded 615, was the new version. uninstalled Again, re-boot, clean registry, delete folder. Same problem - ( warning cannot connect to the internet) Could I possibly have something wrong in my setup or is this Microsoft?

    ronjor,
    Thanks for the link. I found a post there from another individual who has the same problem I have - unfortunately there is no response. I guess I just have to wait for another program update and hope for the best. Meanwhile I'll use it for the real time protection.

    Just an aside, I noticed while installing it that when the screen came up where it asks you if you want to use auto updater etc. when I checked yes and clicked next, the computer sat for a long time ( I almost thought it froze) before it moved on to the next option. I wonder if something was not going right at that moment. But without their support who knows?

    Hi All, If your having difficulty with MSAS repeatedly wanting to update. If you update & then can update again & again. The problem is a bad .dll file. Here's the fix:

    1. Quit MSAS right click system tray icon & turn her off
    2. Go to windows explorer C:\windows\system32
    3. Locate "gCuncompress.dll
    4. right click the file choose properties
    5. If the file size is 132,000 bytes, this is the trouble maker, the correct size
    is 95,488 bytes.
    6. delete the gCuncompress.dll
    7. Go to control panel > add/remove programs
    8. highlight MSAS and choose change
    9. Choose install
    10. When the install is finished, you can check that gCuncompress.dll is 95,488byte. Your done & the download problems are history.

    Note: Ver 615 is supposed to fix, the continous updating problem.
    Note: Current definition is 5735 not 5733
    Note: If you have SpywareGuard, from Javacool turn it off prior to an MSAS
    scan, likewise for WinPatrol+.

    Regards,
    rico

    I've got the right number of defs, the right gcuncompress.dll, but it still hasn't upgraded to beyond version 1.0.614...

    I used this thread http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,13925438 to get my version of MSAS to update properly. If you read through it carefully you may find the proper way to update MSAS. I had a lot of trouble with MSAS, as many other are as well, but if you follow what's posted there it should help you out.

    Some people there found that clearing their IE browser catch helped them, but don't ask me why.

    And VERY IMPORTANT after you download the MSAS installer make sure your MSAS installer is dated Wednesday July 13, 2005 as posted by Longroad. If you don't have the latest installer you can't update to the latest version.

    Don't forget to update MSAS after you install the latest version.

    And I didn't use a reg cleaner when I reinstalled MSAS. All I did was clear my IE browser cache & history. [Open IE > click Tools > Internet Options > Delete Cookies, Files & History, just to be on the safeside].

    Then restart. Went to Microsoft.com and redownloaded the MSAS installer. After it's downloaded, I checked the installer and made sure it was dated July 13, 2005. It was, so then delete old version of MSAS and the MSAS folder in C:\program files. Restart. Installed new version of MSAS. Restarted again.

    Then went online to update MSAS. It updated to version 5735. Now it's working and I have the latest version. [1.0.615/5735] I hope you all can get yours working too.

For each definition library file, the table lists the file name, the date, and the time when the file was compiled in Pacific Time (US and Canada), the file size, the MD5 and SHA-1 hash values for the file, and the date when the file was released in Pacific Time. These files are located in the %programfiles%\Microsoft Antispyware folder on your computer. You can verify whether you have the latest signature update on your computer by using the information in this table.

    Hi

    I'm somewhat confused, yesterdays post (7/21/05) I tried MSAS download definitions & I was up to date at 5735. Then I checked:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;892519#table

    Which yesterday & today states most current version is 5735. This is supposed to be the released information.

    Today I try again & I'm now with the rest of you at 5737. Perhaps they have a 2 - 3 day delay in, updating the above link?

    Regards,
    rico
