I have disabled firewall and antivirus but still can not update.
You might want to list the security programs and operating system your are using.
If you haven't already, take a look at the troubleshooting tips here.
Windows XP, I have Norton Antivirus and Windows Firewall (which I have disabled both.) It used to work till I just installed the latest version.
Any suggestions here helpful? https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=217559
Not really, I tried this, and I got redirect page, and then get directed to the main SpywareBlaster page.

I found the problem. I had Comodo Firewall Pro installed. It was shutdown (disabled) but it was still blocking updates. I activated it and then allowed SpywareBlaster, and now updates is working. I thought being disabled, it would not block anything. WRONG!!
Good to hear you're updating and thanks for the information.
Have you reported this to Comodo? It might be a good idea to do so. (As you noted, the expected behavior when it's shut down/disabled is probably that it isn't blocking anything.)
