    I have recently re-installed Windows XP. Prior to that, I never experienced any problems with updating SpywareBlaster, whether I was using the Windows firewall or ZoneAlarm firewall. Since reinstalling SWB 3.4, I have been unable to obtain updates, each attempt being met with a message informing me of an error in connecting me to the Update Server. I have tried removing the ZoneAlarm firewall and tried re-downloading SWB 3.4. I still cannot access the Update Server.

    Has anyone else experienced this problem?
    Has anyone any helpful suggestions?

    Did u try one of the alternative download methods?

    If not, open your SpywareBlaster interface, click on Updates>Options and try one of the other methods there.

    U can always update manually in the meantime,

    I am having problems with the manual update function and receive the following error message: There was an error downloading the database files. At least one of the files is corrupted. I have reinstalled the program, used the alternate method of downloading and added the javacool site to my firewall exceptions. None of these has solved problem. I am using MS XP.

    Thanks for any help.
