    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

Library update problem

I had a similar problem. See post of 10-2-2011. My problem occurred suddenly on 3 (one Win 7, 2 Win Vista) computers running Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security. After running the update perfectly for 6 months they all stopped allowing the update on the same day. I had to turn off the malicious website blocker temporarily to get it to work. Another computer running Kaspersky flagged it as suspicious but allowed it and a Win XP running Microsoft security suite had no problem.
So my problem downloading updates to the PSR 800 software was caused by a Trend Micro download of new definitions on 10-1-2011. I still have to temporarily turn off the malicious website blocker to get it to work with Trend Micro Titanium.
Interestingly when I tried adding the 2 update URL's to the exception list it seemed to allow the update but would not actually load the update, so my only out is to turn off the malicious website blocker temporarily.
I hope this helps.

I have had no such trouble with Microsoft Security Essentials, which local service folks and computer radio show hosts are now recommending over other packages if you have Windows Vista or 7. When I switched over from Kaspersky my subjective computer speed immediately doubled. And if anything goes wrong you can blame MS as usual, but it looks like they bought out a winner with MSE. Free, too.
