Hi Again Everyone
Over the last couple of weeks I have noticed some issues with updating several of my programs and Windows itself. I had this problem which I solved in a rather unorthadox fashion: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/120413/windows-update-error-80070005/
Now, I cannot update SUPERAntispyware or Quicktime. For Superantispyware
When I check for updates it always reports: "Your definitions are up to date". The latest updates shown are Dec. 4th. I know that SAS updates almost daily; I've checked their website and sure enough, there are new definitions available. I have to download them manually, unzip them and put them in the proper folder. On the main window it shows the latest definition file, BUT the "last time updated" still shows Dec. 4th. I have SAS on my Win2K box and it updates no problem.
I have tried completely removing the program including all registry enteries, clearing my cache and temp files and re-installing. Upon re-install I check for updates....and it still says: "Your definitions are up to date"!!
Reinstalling did not solve the issue...so I think it's a Windows issue and not a program issue.
I have checked all firewall permissions for this program to ensure I'm allowing SAS to run, check the internet for updates and use msiexec.exe as the installer.For Quicktime
Same issue, I'm using QT version 7.3. Recently a critical security update 7.3.1 was issued. Usually, I'll get a popup from Apple Software update about the new version....it never appeared. Again, when checking for updates, it says "your software is up-to-date." I checked firewall permissions and everything....no dice.
I don't know if this is at all related to the problem I had with Windows Update from the link earlier in this message with error 80070005.
I think these problems are somewhat related. I don't know if any other programs are affected. I think my permissions are somewhat screwed up. Vista seems to be very stingy about permissions and it's becoming quite annoying.
Any know what's going on?? Please help.
