IObit Security 360 Professional update trouble

Well here's the story: I was on this site when I read an article about some freebies. One was that IObit was offering a free one year activation of its professional (paid) version of Security 360. All went well at first. Downloaded, installed and got an email with the activation code. Was getting daily updates until recently when a pop up would say: New version of IObit Security 360 is available now. It's free. Download now? If I click on the yes box nothing happens. Funny thing is as far as I know I'm using the latest version(v1.10). Now it's not updating any new malware definition files. The same pop up just appears. I went to their web site to see if I could manually download the supposed new version but none of their download page links would work. This is not an isolated incident. A friend of mine tried the same offer and the same thing happened to him. I read about IObit getting into hot water because of allegedly stealing definition files from Malwarebytes. I wonder if that has got something to do with it. Has anyone else run into the same problem? If I can't resolve this issue I'll go back to using what I was, which was Spyware Terminator. Not a very good endorsement for their product is it?
