    Brand new guy, here. Just DL'd SpywareBlaster.
    Trying to get the update, but, it says I can't get it, from the updater, although one IS available. It says to go to Wilders, to get it. Where do I go, @ Wilders, to get the update. I obviously don't know my way around here, yet.......
    Any Help is appreciated.

    (NEWBIES!!!....what a PAIN they are, HUH?)

    Hey Gazoo....Welcome to Wilders [​IMG]

    Replies will possibly come slower than you expect but they will come. :)

    I have also moved your thread to the SpywareBlaster Forum.

    You said:
    "but, it says I can't get it, from the updater"

    Would you explain that a little further. Is there more to the error message and are you attempting the update via the program ?

    It says "An update for SB program is available, but cannot be DL'd from this updater. Visit http:/ xxx.wildersecurity.net/spywareblaster.html to obtain it."
    Which one there, is the one I need?
    Thanks.

    Where did you download the SpywareBlaster program from ?

    That is not a valid link you placed in your above post.

    Did you possibly spell it wrong ?

    It's spelled Wilderssecurity....NOT Wildersecurity....it is 2 s's NOT 1.

    The one you gave leads to a site I'm questioning.

    I originally DL'd the SB program from PC WORLD.COM.
    Gee, maybe I DID just misspell it.
    I couldn't copy & paste the address, from the message.
    So, would you know the correct address?
    I appreciate you helping.

    One valid address for SpywareBlaster is the link below.

    This link---> SpywareBlaster 3.2 Download

    Have you already installed the program from PC World that you downloaded and do you still have the link to that download ?

    Thanks, Bubba & BigC.
    Here's the page/link from PC World that I installed from, originally.
    http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_description/0,fid,23106,00.asp
    I'm gonna uninstall that version, & get the 3.2 DL'd.
    I find it surprising, that a reputable name like PCWorld would have a faulty link made available. Maybe one of you guys might want to check it out, huh?
    Thanks for all your help & patience.
    I'll let you know how I made out, installing 3.2.
    Thanks again, guys.

    Damn......That's not good, for PCWorld, to be doing THAT!

    Still trying to get 3.2, now.
    I'm at MAJORGEEKS site...does it matter which DL location I do it from, there?
    There are 4 USA ones...

    Thank you, Bubba & BigC.
    I DL'd the most recent version, 3.2, w/o any problems.
    I hope no one else is led astray, by PCWORLD.
    I'll be more careful, next time.
    Probably come to this forum. VERY enlightening. You guys know your stuff, & do it well.
    Thanks!
