    Hi Olsweede. :)

    Welcome to Wilders.

    Try one of the other download alternatives.

    Open your SpywareBlaster interface, click on Updates>Options and choose on of the other methods.

    U can also update manually,

    Hi snowbound.
    I have found out what was missing, i had deactivated IE and was useing firefox only, but that way i could'nt make spywareblaster connect and update, the program needed IE activated and connected, or else no update.

    And that's sad because i do'nt like to use IE or Outlook anymore at all, had som problem earlyer, but i suppose i got to live with it and just use IE when i have to update.

    Bye-bye, and thank you all.

    Same here. I have been using Firefox and couldn't get the updates to work.

    I discovered my "IE" settings were set to "Work Offline". With this set spyware blaster and spyware guard can't connect to the server. I unchecked this and they both connect fine. (there are no updates though)

    ;)
