i posted recently an issue described above under the same topic title


i just found out something interesting.....


when i opened the details of the update log

it says that all the update signatures have been uploaded

except for the file called " e_spyw.i17 "


the exact content of the update log is as follows:



General Information:

Update started: 8/18/2013 9:30:19 PM
Update ended: 8/18/2013 9:43:12 PM
Time elapsed: 0:12:53

Unable to retrieve update information from server

Detailed Information:

12 modules, 2530561 bytes

so I am dealing with an uncomplete update process....not the

Please allow me to apologize for the slow response.

If you are still having issues, then we will need a Fiddler log to see what is causing the issue.

Please download and install Fiddler 2 from this link (this is the version that requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0), and then follow the instructions below:

  • After installing Fiddler, please open it from the Start Menu.
  • Launch Emsisoft Anti-Malware.
  • Go to Configuration in the menu on the left.
  • Select the Update Settings tab.
  • Click on the Connection settings link in the lower-right corner.
  • Check the box that says Use proxy server.
  • Enter localhost in the Proxy server field, and then enter 8888 in the port field.
  • Click 'OK'.
  • Go back to the Menu on the left, and select Security Status.
  • Click on the Update Now button to start the update (Fiddler must be running when you do this).
  • After the update fails, go back to Fiddler, and to File, then Save, and select All Sessions (please save it on your desktop).
  • Please send me the Fiddler log in a Private Message (do not post in in a reply).
Note that you may need to ZIP the log to be able to attach it to a Private Message. If you don't have a utility such as 7-Zip, WinZip, or WinRar that you can ZIP files and folders by right-clicking on them, going to Send To, and clicking on Compressed (zipped) Folder.
