error message on onecare safety scanner RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • We are unable to complete the full scan.  It hangs up at 66% on installation and we get an error message:  error

       0x08402805

    Can anyone help? What does this mean?

  • Error code 0x08402805 means that some Safety Scanner file(s) did not download.  A dial-up 56K connection takes about two hours to download.  The complete download is over 50 Meg.  You can use the Task Manager Networking tab to see if the download is still in progress or if it is actually hung up.

    The free OneCare Safety Scanner is not supported here, but on these sites:
