Since releasing Windows AntiSpyware (Beta) on January 6, 2005 (Build 1.0.501), we have continued to receive feedback from customers. We introduced a first beta refresh on February 16, 2005 (Build 1.0.509) which enhanced some of the real-time protection agents, added new threat categories, and improved stability and performance.

In this second beta refresh [(Build 1.0.614), we’ve made other enhancements to the detection and removal capabilities, including improved Winsock LSP removal capabilities and support for long descriptions of categorized software. In addition, we have also extended the Windows AntiSpyware beta expiration date to December 31, 2005.

Existing users of the beta (Builds 1.0.501 and 1.0.509) will receive a software update that extends the expiration date and includes the enhancements to the detection and removal capabilities. The second beta refresh is also available for download through this site.

The user must be an administrator to install this application. To check the version number, click About Microsoft AntiSpyware… on the Help menu.

In reply to: UPDATES - June 25, 2005 - Windows Antispyware Build 1.0.614

I am confused. I updated yesterday to 1.0.613, is this another upgrade to 1.0.614? I just tried after seeing your post using that gcasSWUpdater and it did not find anything. It did work yesterday for the 1.0.613 update. Hope you can clear this up for me. Thanks

You can download the installer again from MS site

In reply to: second one

and install it on top of current version if the updater can't detect or if their server has not given you the 614.

Thanks

OK I will download it, the updater is not giving it to me. Thanks

still 613

In reply to: (NT) You're welcome!

I downloaded it from the microsoft site and after installing on top still had 613. So uninstalled and reinstalled and still have 613. I figure it has not gotten to all the servers so I just need to wait maybe till tomorrow and try again. I thought I would post this in case anyone else is having the same problem. Thanks

MVPS Hosts File update 06/25/2005

Good HOSTS file ...

In reply to: MVPS Hosts File update 06/25/2005

MVPS, when combined with Spybot S&D hosts file, just keeps getting better ... without being excessively draconian ...

So far I'm only using

In reply to: Good HOSTS file ...

Spybot's myself but I am thinking of combining this one with it. It's on my list of experiments. LOL My current experiment is Ewido. The guard is only good for the trial period but the scanner will still be free and updatable after the trial so between that and a-squared I'm fairly well covered for Trojans. One experiment at a time so if something messes up, I know what caused it.

I hear you ...

In reply to: So far I'm only using

but I have been combining Spybot's and MVPS hosts files for some time now and really like it ... currently (today) its 319KB and doesn't mess with too many web sites I like ... unlike hpGuru's which takes a ''harsh'' approach to too many sites I visit ... but to each his own ...

Making the switch from hpguru to MVPS.

In reply to: I hear you ...

Jake, I'm going to give the MVPS hosts files a try per your comment about hpguru being too restrictive, which I also find to be true from my experience. You seem a level-headed guy, who doesn't make rash decisions, so I'm going to give it a go. What can I loose? I can always switch back to hpguru, right? LOL.

In reply to: UPDATES - June 25, 2005 - Windows Antispyware Build 1.0.614

went to link provided and d/l.
after exiting exisiting MSAS ran it and came up with version 1.0.613 again.

Not sure what happen there David

In reply to: sorry Donna

You can try to refresh the program:

MS Antispyware>Help>About>Diagnostics>Click OK
Close MS AS. Exit MS AS then launch it again. Check the Help>About again to see if it will show 614 now?

If still show 613, try Mark's work-around by uninstalling 613 and install the 614 installer.
