Hi folks,

I had an update problem the other day with Spybot S&D. These things can happen. The update server can be busy. They have several. It just depends.

greets,

polonus

I had a problem with Spybot's updates yesterday Polonus but it was ok after i restarted the PC! I hope Ad-Aware and Spybot don't become like AVG where you sometimes just can't get it to update for hours!


Cheers

Mikey

Miha my friend... there are indeed some problems with Spybot's updates as well... but try to solve that by switching to some other download mirrors. I am sure you already know that, but just in case I wanted to mention again... See attach:



It helped me a million of times by now... Btw, anyone knows what happened to Rootboxen.us or something like that ? ...that one was most reliable mirror ever...

Same problem with S&D updates I switched to the European mirrors as I kept getting Bad Checksum! and was able to download the update OK.

This is very very common with S&D  :P
You need to change the mirror or close the program and starting update again, boot...
Or you have to manually download the update and apply it, sometimes.
Very bad update  :P

Searching web for Rootboxen.us I just found few topics. One of them relate the same trouble here (bad checksum).

Getting off-Topic ; but seeing this thread started with  Ad-Aware , then SpyBot S&D updates, it raised some questions I've had on my mind for awhile now. I know we're talking data base updates, not program releases but:
Firefox (major release ) 1.4 to 1.5 =>Major Bug...FF releases 1.6 in same week.

Winpatrol 9.7. Not everyone had trouble , but myself and others, did. I'm still using WP 9.5 .

The last release of ZoneAlarm(6) has some minor problems. http://www.castlecops.com/t130211-ZoneAlarm_Pro_V6.html

My point is we seem to be getting a frantic lot of program updates , and problems with 'em.
I'd be interested in opinions about why ?
Is it because viruses and malware is out of control, we're just not able to keep up , and the rush to keep up is causing errors?

I think you mean 1.0.4, 1.0.5, 1.0.6 the 1.5 version is in beta at present so hasn't been released.

This discussion would have to be in a topic of its own as it has nothing to do with update problems.
