I attempted several times to get Spyware Blaster to update. It would appear to do so (very slowly). When it was completed I had messages stating that there were database errors and that the database might be corrupted. I uninstalled and reinstalled several times, but had the same thing happen each time. Fortunately, I found a post here that told me how to do it manually, and all is fine now. I'm interested in figuring out what the problem might have been though. Will I have to update manually from now on? I've never had a problem before and I've been using it for a while now. My OS is Win2K Professional, SP3. Thanks for any insight!
