Question about Computer Associates CA Internet Security Suite Plus 2008 (ISSP08STDW03)

1 Answer

Cannot connect to software update database.

I just got the old version of CA Internet Security Suite Plus 2008. I entered in one of the three valid activation codes but whenever I try to update the software, it says that it cannot connect to the software database. It says to check my internet connection settings. Obviously, I am connected to the internet right now. I'm not sure how to get the updates and I'd rather $70 not go to waste.

Windows Security won't reconnize my CA Security Suite 2008 Antivirus software. It says my virus protection is not found. All scans done and product is up to date.

Windows does not recognise the software is all. Just turn off the warning in windows control panel.
BTW. Anti virus is a waste of money, a big rip off, you have to visit very dodge sites & download strange looking files to do this. Anyone who is web savey & not a total pervert has no need to worry about viruses. Windows has a decent firewall built in & if you use a router then that probably a firewall too. Any more is overkill & will just slow down your system. So firewall yes but what you have is fine. AV. Get rid of it.
