Auto Update Problem

Postby ProTruckDriver » Sun Feb 09, 2014 4:17 pm

When an update is released, how long does it take for users computers to update. I have to manually update from the taskbar all the time. It's set to the default setting and I have tried many times with a uninstall and fresh reinstall. I still have to manually update daily. After a fresh install AM updates to the latest update and then no more. I tried running AM with Webroot SecureAnywhere, NIS-2014 and even MSE alone, still no automatic update. What am I doing wrong?

A very tiny number of users have reported this before.

We are unable to duplicate it.

The automatic update is a very simple mechanism...

it works just fine for 99% of our users...

v5.x is going to completely replace v4.x so we're hoping this gets fixed in the rewrite.

I can only surmise it's related to something you've changed or installed on Windows.

Thanks for the reply Jeff. Looks like I'm one of the unlucky ones on this but I can live with it. Hopefully this will be fixed in Version 5. :D

Yes really, what can i say your software is over the hill and too old and slow to keep up with the super fast internet and its https.

But i look forward to some more trolling of admunche 5.x coming along that can deal with https but you can not release any infomration because you dont have it as murry is too busy with leap frog is it? i dunno...

Seriously, everytime you ask people to vote for this application i vote for another as ive lost faith in it being updated.

No you just opt not to use https because you dont give a crap about your privacy unlike many others.

Like i said admuncher = outdated, kind of like you jeff.

https is a completely separate issues from Ad Muncher not working.

99% of sites are not HTTPS so you are being disingenuous.

No Jeff you are just doing what you do best and trolling customers and denying the facts which is admuncher is out of date, it seems to be the only priority you have is votes, polls and more sales but updates, well sorry they are on hold because Murry is busy with another project.

Admuncher is ment to block ads in all browsers it does not say anywhere that its unable to block them no matter how you try and convince yourself the application is old and out of date and now seriously overpriced.

But hey you can keep denying it if you wish and saying "admuncher is great!" but the first step is to admit you have a problem Jeff, and you do.

Anyway im out of this thread and as a premium customer i say this application is out of date and over priced specially when your competitors are cheaper and can handle https.

HTTPS has never been filtered...

so by your logic Ad Muncher was outdated in 1999...

1999? Wasn't this the year you started to claim that AM5 will be released "soon"?
