I am running on Windows 7 64-bit OS and just installed SpywareGuard version 2.2 on my computer. I have successfully updated its definitions to 1/22/04. Its latest definitions are only until 2004 as explained in the its FAQ quoted below.

However, my problem is that when I click on LiveUpdate again (just in case SG has new updates), I receive this message "Run-time error '5': Invalid procedure call or argument."

Is this expected from SpywareGuard? Or is this a compatibility/outdated software issue?

Why is the most recent database update for SpywareGuard dated 2004?
Some of SpywareGuard's strongest protection is its Browser Hijacking Protection, which is a behavior-based defense. It doesn't need any sort of definition updates, and is still as effective (and powerful) as it was on the day of release.

Oh, I didn't catch that! My bad.. Hopefully they would release a Windows 7 version of this software soon.

I apologize for replying late because I was busy with work and overtime.

Thank you very much, ThunderZ!
