    Please help. I have read the other threads re Spyware Blaster 3.2 updating problems, but that hasn't improved my situation.

    I installed the free version of Spyware Blaster 3.2 in September when it said that its database was loaded on 7/7/04 with 3022 items in database, and this is what it keeps saying ever since although I am doing the manual updates regularly. When updating, everything seems fine. It goes to the server, tells me it's fetching the data, then tells me the new data are installed, but back in the Protection panel nothing has changed, it still shows July as the latest database.

    This keeps happening regardlless of wheter I am using Explorer or Firefox and regardless of whether or not my Zone Alarm Security Suite (virus + firewall protection) is turned on or off.

    My computer is an old Compaq Presario with 63 RAM and running on Windows Me without any other problems.

    Thank you.

    WooHoo, I am updated at last!
    Thank you, Snowbound!!
    Although I'd read that thread you linked me too as I thought very carefully, the Options thingie on the Downloads page didn't register. (Iwas convinced only alternatives were manual or automatic update) I had to set mine to direct internet, and walah, here I am in shiny new armor :D

    Thanks again!

    i think the problems that some people have had with updating spywareblaster are firewall-related..

    In most cases the problems are indeed firewall-related or proxy-related.

    I'm working to try to reduce the number of issues caused by both of those types of programs - with luck, it'll work out. ;)
