Sounds like too many cooks in the soup. Could be that you may want to get rid of some of what you are trying to run. Rule of thumb, one antivirus/spyware one firewall otherwise some items will create conflicts with others and frustration sets in. Some of the "FREEBIES" create more issues than they resolve, especially if one or more of them is touted to perform a similar function(s).
I have an Acer Aspite 3680 Laptop running Vista. I installed Ad Aware, Malaware Bytes Anti Malware, and Avira. I am unable to download updates of any of them. It is not an internet issue as I can go online.
With Malaware Bytes the error I get is Error Code 732 (12029, 0).
Is there a setting I need to change? Or are these programs not compatible with Vista?
