Spybot 1.4 updating problems

I have just installed 1.4 and find that I too am experiencing 10061 errors that are shown as supposedly resolved in another thread.

Is there any setting I need change or can I update by downloading another way then manually installing. I've made a web search but what, if anyrhing, turns up is not helpful. Full instructions will be most appreciated. Thank you.

In Spybot's Update window, try selecting EON (Australia) from the drop-down list of download sites.

Sorry, you've lost me. I cannot find the item you mention in the update window.

The button to the right of Search for updates. It is probably set to Safer Networking #1 (Europe). Click the arrow and select EON (Australia).

But the button to right shows <<No server selceted> and the drop down box is read- won't open!

It should look like click here

That's what I am talking about. But clicking on that or the little botton at the r.h. edge does absolutely nothing at all. No drop down box appears.

I have Spybot 1.3 but when I "search for updates" I get "No newer updates available"??? even when using EON (Australia).

Bretsky, thanks for the link.

Kooking at the dates of the link-forum posts, that rfer to an ongoing problem, I do not feel encouraged to continue with Spybot, as the *actual* ability to update definitions would seem essential.

Am I being too harsh or should Spybot users be looking for an alternative program?

Just realised, Spybot 1.4 is not an update it is a completely new version. Have downloaded it from download.com and installed it. All went smoothly and no problems.
