    I'm running ver1.3. The main screen says 'Spyware database loaded 4/7/04. 2817 items in data base.' I click update and it goes through the process and says download complete and successful. But when I go back status screen it still says data base loaded 4/7/04 with 2817 items loaded in data base. Should this stay the same or be altered? I've read threads that the data base should have over 2900 items. Any suggestions? tia Richard
    fyi When downloading update, I quit all security programs. ie: za, avg etc.

    I appreciate all who posts to tell me what it should be. But my problem still exists. Even though sb3.1 says download successful, it still reads my original install date 4/7/04 w/2817 items in database. I've tried everything. I deleted w/add/remove. Deleted w/sb uninstall. Went thru register and deleted any instances of spywareblaster. Reinstalled and it still says 4/7/04 on the statis page of sb. Does anyone have any idea where this info is stored? tia Richard
