i knew that microsoft was not going to release the official version yet.
i wonder wat are the new thing the bug fixes etc... in the new beta version.
in the site it has the feb version?
If you are using a previous version you can simply upgrade to the refreshed version. The version number of the refreshed version is 1.0.509. To check the version number, click About Microsoft AntiSpyware… on the Help menu.
i download the latest version and its still the old version i download it from the update threads and still its takes a sec to download and its the old version any help
try this: http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/Microsoft_Windows_AntiSpyware/1105022593/1
The new version downloaded well and works just fine here.
MS AntiSpyware alerted me that a new version is out... i just clicked OK and it downloaded and installed the update for me...
however, when i clicked "whats new in this version" i get nothing....
i wonder what they fixed in this version?
i reinstalled me firewall and installed the beta version but i don't know why when i download the new version it download in a sec and when i install it its the same version wats wrong
or exit MSAS then load it up again...
Wonderful, wonderful Microsoft. After closing down MSAS beta 1 I installed the file which I had downloaded from the MS web site and lo and behold, I now have MSAS beta 1.
I know the build has increased from .509 to .613 but would it have been so difficult to change it to beta 2? Well, beta 3 actually since we've already had two beta 1 releases.
What is it with Microsoft and insisting on causing mass confusion? Are numbers in such short supply in Seattle that they weren't allowed to change beta 1 to a higher number, like everyone else that releases beta software does?
That would most probably require a board meeting to change numbers
im still using Giant..lol MD
now they are up to .614 already
Do I need to uninstall the first one or can I download the new beta over the top. I thought that the software update would upgrade automatically, been trying for a few days with no joy
Install over the top, no probs!
Thanks Gerardwil, will it keep the same settings too?
I did my install over the top, then a reboot was needed to finish the install. I had no problems at all doing it this way.
Another thing I would like to mention. I have a very large HOSTS file. 1.99 meg with 69,834 entries. It causes the on demand scan to hang on my system. For a workaround I rename the HOSTS file to do the scan and then rename it to the original after the scan is completed.
How do I get the latest MSAS version 1.0.614?
Each time I downloaded from Microsoft site and other sites I get 1.0.613.
Any idea what have gone wrong?
It's listed here. http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4466.html
I have version .613 and every time I try to update the defs and program it say the program is upto date at .613
Thanks for the link ronjor I got the 614 ver. no problems.
