It seems that IObit Guy and the SD team have released a new version of SD that helps out with the crashes and hang-ups. You can get it here http://www.iobit.com/files/smartdefrag2.exe Also, Anyone that uses CCleaner should make sure to uncheck the box that clears the prefetch folder in the cleanup operation of CCleaner. There is no need to clear your prefetch folder EVER- the folder will automatically clean itself up and purge old/unused entries when necessary or when the limit is reached. I'm pretty sure that the makers of CCleaner have already disabled this option by default for this reason.
If you get a message that there are no updates available then the program is simply up to date although if you know there are updates that aren't installing you should just uninstall and delete the program folder and then reinstall. There is a possibility that you cannot manually update because the auto-update feature is on and your version has already been updated. You shouldn't have to disable zone alarm firewall for any reason using AWC- just set the AWC permissions to "allow" and check the box to remember the new firewall rule. Anyways, if the problem was that AWC was unable to connect to the internet it would give you that message instead of "there are no updates available." I am not familiar with Avira anti-virus but if you paid for it you should cancel that subscription and just get some quality free anti-virus like Avast! Home Edition (check download.com for the high reviews) If you are having issues with the Security Defense Scan then it is likely that either you are not allowing the scan to finish (it may have a lot to do if this is your first time repairing using the new version) or the problem is actually with the program on your computer... you should submit an error log to Tim so he can handle this. In the meantime just uncheck the Security Scan option and run another scan and repair... then try running the scan again with the security scan checked just to make sure there is no problem with any other scan functions. If you're concerned about your security in the meantime you can try Spywareblaster by JavaCool Software- it's free but doesn't have as complete a database as does AWC.
