I am not happy that I cannot download the new Tax Tables. McAfee virus scanner advises that it contains spyware, virus or other potentially unwanted programmes  in the file. Two e-mails sent to Reckon. No Response. I cannot wait on telephone for hours while someone gets back to me.

Just a false positive........'might' doesn't mean it is a virus etc..

Outdated installation procedures cause it.

Pretty sure that you are supposed to disable anti virus when updating according to the instructions, give that a try, it might work.
Good luck

Thanks Di and Tim for your suggestions. I had already disabled the anti virus and firewall prior to installation. I suspect that it has been my internet browser.(Internet Explorer)
I have just installed Chrome and the tax table update installed very easily.
