A short while ago I tried to up date but could not get any response.

I uninstalled Spybot and reinstalled, Spybot appeared to load but would not show on the screen

Any idea's

Leave it for a while (several minutes). When it appears click on the Update button and select the Australian site from the drop-down menu.

Uninstall from Add Remove then go to Explorer and look for the Spybot folder and delete it. you could also go to the find files to look for Spybot and delete what it finds before reinstalling. On the update side use the country choos button to download I use USA and it work's first time do not try Europe as it's pathetic

Thanks for that VoG I had been having trouble up dating and thought I had solved it by doing as you suggest.

Unfortunately I got a bit fed up and decided to re install.

My problem is, now the dam thing loads but will not display on the monitor. I must admit I got a bit miffed and uninstalled it but I would prefere to have it up and running.

Don't know if they are connected but I have started to have problems media player 9 it wont connect to the web

Go to the SpybotSD folder in Explorer and click on the main folder, then look for SpybotSD.exe double click to see if it runs, if it does you can right click and drag a shortcut to the Start button
