Not sure if you could download it to your computer with out running it and Then download it in safe mode.Reboot and see if it will update.

I had a couple of problems with Spywareblaster on this computer.

When in All programs and going up to windows update it kept sticking on Spywareblaster and showing the folder as empty but that onlylasted for about 10 seconds then it would continue.

I have updated it since so that may have been the problem.

I can only think remove it completely using Revo uninstaller on setting 4. Run c cleaner reboot and try uninstalling it again.

Or try right clicking it properties and make sure it is set to Normal Window just in case it is set to minimised.

I should have said try installing again and not uninstalling.

Try downloading SAS again a fresh copy and re-install. There were probs with Win 7 64 bit:
