As anyone can see from the link that follows...
...problems updating my anti-spyware are a persistent issue with me.
When I connected my computer to my buddy's 10 meg connection, guess what happened?
The former problems I'd been having...no updates for nearly two weeks...disappeared instantly.
ZoneAlarm responded once on his
Going into hmmmmmm mode, I figured that if there were stability problems with .408 that were manifesting themselves on dial-up, I'd better consider upgrading to .462.
Which I did.
It worked fine at his place yesterday, on that connection, and guess what happens this morning when reconnected to my dialup?
Anti-virus updates just fine.
Anti-spyware will not update, yielding the error message of:
HTTP response said error ('http://upd.zonelabs..com/zonealarm/online//Catalog.zip')
I've not changed any settings...an internet accelerator on my dial-up connection has nothing to do with this...yada yada yada.
The buddy whose connection I was using is himself a computer repair and help-desk technician for a major company and he (again) scoured my computer for anything that could be amiss.
He found zilch.
Why does everything seem to work just fine on high-speed but jam up on dialup...especially considering that up until a month ago THAT issue had never reared its ugly head?
If dialup is truly the problem, then why would A-V updates download seamlessly?
My work (CPA) zooms into high gear in just a couple of weeks.
That is nobody's concern here, but it tells me that given problems with ZA keep happening non-stop for me, I'm entering my last week with this firm and its product.
I don't ask for much, but apparently it is a lot (for me) with ZA to wish for a relatively normal existence.
All I've had for months are issues moreso than solutions.
Everyone that responds tells me to upgrade, upgrade, upgrade.
I've argued that I can't see how that'll solve the issue.
I've given in...upgraded...and have the same problems.
