    Ever since installing Spyware Blaster V4.0 & and now V4.1 updating and installing new protection updates have taken extremely long. It uses 100% of cpu time. V4.1 is a little quicker, but not like it use to be with the older versions. I'm using 2 different machines with the same result. Anybody else having this problem?

    Hi,

    What version of Windows are you running on each machine?
    And what other security/privacy software do you have installed? (Such as anti-virus, anti-trojan, other anti-spyware, firewall, cleaning tools, etc.)

    SpywareBlaster verifies the integrity of update files while downloading them, to help ensure nothing gets corrupted during updates. This can cause a small delay in the updating process, but should be basically unnoticeable on most computers.

    EDIT: Also, which part of the updating process is slowed down the most?
    * Actually downloading the updates (where the green progress bar fills in from 0 to 100%)
    * Between update file downloads
    * At the end where SpywareBlaster verifies and loads the database

    Best regards,
