Spybot will not let me finish immunising my laptop it says that I need to try again with my status elevated to administrator. I am the administrator, i checked in 'user accounts'.Any suggestions would be gratefully received. I am running vista on n HP machine.

Perhaps you can right click on Spybot and choose run as administreator.
The other thing you could try is temporarily turning of the UAC whilst you do it.
Control panel>user accounts>turn off user account control.

thanks very much for the info. mrwoowoo turning off the UAC did the trick. Cheers.
