SpywareBlaster Error to Connect to Update Servers.

This question is not answered

Somebody else having this problem when trying to update SWB.

In Wilders, Ron says he does not have any problems, but there are several users complaining about it.

I check SWB updates manually every week or so. I did it yesterday, all was fine, no updates though, and today I could not connect.

  • Hernan, I don't understand what you are asking. If you can connect SWB will let you know if there are or are not any updates. Did you mean to say that you could not connect? Maybe they are working on the server or something. I just checked the topic at Wilders. I have not had a problem connecting to the update server in the last few minutes, so I do not have anything else to add to the discussion..

  • Hi BB.

    Sorry about that. I forgot the "not" at my last sentenceEmbarrassed

    Ok I am able to connect to SWB updates servers again today. It was odd. I tried yesterday all day long without success. Usually if that happens, I go to SWB > Updates > Options and check " Use Alternative Download Methods " and SWB will connect again, but for whatever reazon that was not working either.

    Thanks for  answering BB.

    Yes, that is what they were doing. It has been resolved.
