spybot search and destroy

Spybot search and destroy recently failed to open on my pc - been using it for years.

So I downloaded the latest version (unsuccessfully) - said i'd downloaded a read only file!

Then...I managed to successfully download the application (I thought) but THIS won't open neither! What could be the problem?

I would remove it first via Add/Remove Programs then maybe try downloading from an alternative site

Downloaded 'Revo Uninstaller' but had already removed spybot - might come in useful in the future though.

Can anyone recommend a good site for the spybot download?

Anyone have an idea why my old spybot failed to open after having served me so well in the past?

No idea but it does seem to be temperamental. If I run mine after a disc has been in the DVD writer it refuses to come on with a message that there is no disc and I have to put one in after which it runs normally.
