Welcome back Larry
There have been a few that have had problems with the MSAS new version but that is nothing new really for that program. LOL I'm probably one of the few that has not messed with the new version yet. It has not been offered to me via the updater yet and I figure I have a month left before the old one runs out. I DO have the newest defs though so this is what I am using personally at the moment. I will continue to use it for a while because it is working fine still and the defs are current. Most of the others have the newer version. Some are having problems and some aren't.
Microsoft AntiSpyware Version: 1.0.509
This version expires on: 7/31/2005
Spyware Definition Version: 5729 (6/25/2005 3:43:24 PM)
Same version I have...
Mine hasn't tried to upate either. It did update the defs.
There are ways to do it
manually Larry, I chose to wait for a while myself because the old one is working fine with no bugs and I can still get the new defs through it for the moment so I guess it's a personal choice. We have a month left. LOL
(NT) If it 's not broke why fix it...LOL
(NT) Exactly how I feel. LOL
Wait for Notification, right?
Microsoft's information about MSAS 1.0.614 states "USERS who install Windows AntiSpyware (beta) prior to the release of the beta update will receive it as a software update. NEW USERS will be able to download the updated beta through the beta download page." They further comment about testing; ".....making sure that things are OK before releasing to all TESTERS."
With all the forum comments on problems, is this a rush to judgement scenario or just semantical confusion over NEW USER...PRIOR USER...TESTER..et al???
I am still using the first beta refresh (build 1.0.509) and haven't received any notice as yet. I assume that I should wait, like you indicate?? Thanks.
I chose to wait myself, I'm
still using the old one and I am going to wait until I get notified via the updater on the program. Many people didn't want to wait and are downloading it manually, some successful and some not. It's your choice.
Unless you have not updated your profile lately I noticed some others that you use that have updated builds.
Spybot S&D 1.4 final is out
Ad-Aware SE build 1.06 is out
CCleaner 1.20.118 is also out
I think It was up to date when I left, I'll check on the new versions.
Lots of fun. LOL
That will keep you
occupied but not as much as the grandkids do. Tough to keep up with them. LOL You're welcome and if you think of anything else, you KNOW one of will be here so just ask.
OK think I may be all updated...
Except for windows, which I will do tomorrow. Just saw the new SpywareBlaster and got it.
My dialup is very slow tonight.
OK, Larry, I just posted that one, good
luck with the Windows Updates, I'm gone for the night myself now.
Finally got my Windows Updates for June...
Didn't get to do it yesterday. First it updated the 3.1 installer, and I chose to go with Custom Install. I had 9 High Priority updates. These were 898461,883939,898458,893066,890830,896358,890046,896422,896428.
Did everyone get these and did I miss any?
I think I'm finally all updated, except for the new MSAS Build. May try it next.
Yep, you have the same ones
that I got, I keep them written on a list so I chceked my list. The first one on your list (898461) didn't come out until June 28th. The others were all from the regular June release. As far as MSAS, I got the 5731 defs this morning but I'm still using the old build until it offers it to me via the updater. If it gets towards the end of the month before that happens, THEN I will do it manually. Sounds like you are all caught up Larry.
Thank You Roddy, Appreciate it!
I write mine down also. Haven't got the new updates for MSAS yet but I'm sure they will be along shortly.
This Dialup has got to go, I need to get DSL. No cable out here in the country. At least I won't be gone for a month again any time soon, Maybe a few days of camping occasionally. Also need to get a laptop.
I'm in the same boat Larry, the only
other thing available where I live is satelite (can't even get regular DSL) but we get so many severe storms in Kansas that I lose the TV signal whenever there are storms in the southern sky even if they are 100 miles away. For that reason, I also have a regular antenna for the TV so I can watch the weather guy if we have tornadoes on the area. LOL. I don't want to lose the internet when the storms are 100 miles away. I had very old hand-me-down computers for many years so they were real slow but I bought a brand new one a year ago that to ME is very fast, even on dialup after what I was used to so I'm happy with it.
