What you can do is to clean the temp folders (usually C:\Documents and
Settings\username\local settings\temp and c:\Documents and
Settings\username\local settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5 and
delete all the files in those directories and subdirectories). Then try to
perform the update again.

If it does not help, there is a manual update procedure. Follow these steps:

Right click on MSAS icon within systray and choose shutdown.
Right click and "Save target as..."
http://download.spynet.com/ASDefinitions/gcDeterminationData.gcd
http://download.spynet.com/ASDefinitions/gcThreatAuditScanData.gcd
http://download.spynet.com/ASDefinitions/gcThreatAuditThreatData.gcd

Copy/paste these files to Program files/Microsoft Antispyware
Restart MSAS and "check for updates"
If the http:// does not work, try https:// instead..

GCD files inside the app folder?

You need only those three files - they contain current signatures (malware
definitions) for MSAS.

Other gcd files contain configuration settings, I suppose.
