Change the server to another, some have better downloads via usa or australia.

prob a soppy question but you are on line at the time of trying to get updates? my pest patrol kills my internet connection as soon as i search for updates then tells me i have no connection and i have to re connect this might be something similar

I had conflicts with Spybot and adaware. Spybot would be unable to update and sometimes control panel couldn't be accessed. Did a clean reinstall which fixed it for a while, then same thing happened so I just use adaware now.

...having used both Adaware and Spybot on XP Home before with no problems?..........

....this is still a problem for anyone..

I think the reason for this conflict was that Spybot likes to be installed first. Uninstalling both and reinstalling Spybot first gave no problems at all. Mirrors available.
