Spybot Problems

I run Spybot anti spyware program and also Spyware Terminator. I have suddenly started having problems with Spybot. When I run a scan it takes about 2 hours whereas it used to take about 15 minutes and when I eventually get the results it will not eliminate the problems,which it indicates, it has found. Has the program become corrupted or is it due to a virus. My anti virus program is Avast, which I have run and it does not indicate any virus present. Any ideas please.

I've had intermittant problems with Spybot and hence no longer use it but what I would suggest you try in the first instance is to delete it using add/remove programs in control panel and reinstall it afresh and see if it works properly.
