anyone having trouble with the spybot updater today it hangs when checking for updates

Just tried the Safer networking #2 site and that worked ok.

deleted and reinstalled then downloaded all updates and run all the bits [do not use teatimer function]

then checked once more and if freezes after pressing update button again, does not go as far as choosing a download site.

using w7 32bit and in administrator mode too

I have spybot scheduled to automatically update each day and all went through as normal today.

just plain odd

a fresh install allows update function to work but only once there after it freezes.

deleted and uninstalled twice now exact same problem.

Could it be that when you fresh install there will be updates available to apply but then when you try again immediately there will be no updates available but instead of indicating this it just freezes?

  sunnystaines 20:10 09 Feb 2011

yes it could be, but when i went to get the wed updates for the first time today it froze.

wondering if yesterdays ms updates messed it

  Bris 09:20 10 Feb 2011

Yes possible. Have you tried running it with Administrator rights?
