Spybot S&D 1.2 update problems

Whenever I try to update the definitions the program freezes & stops responding. I have tried shutting down all other running programs, but that has'nt worked either. Any clues out there.

There was an update yesterday - servers might be busy. Give it a day or two or manually update - at the bottom right of this page click here find the Update Detections download.

During update, I get an error message the update is forbidden? link FAQ #020
Some user have reported they are not able to download updates. The 'Search for updates' reveals updates, but they cannot be downloaded. Often a 'HTTP Error 403' or 'bad checksum' is displayed. This has a simple reason - thousands of people trying to download from the default server, which can't handle such a burden. If you try again, have a second look at the menu bar. It has a pull-down item to select a mirror. Click the arrow beside it, and select a different location, where you'll most probably have better chances to download. (Spybot-S&D 1.2 will set a random mirror as the default to better distribute the load)

Current problems with the main installer download have the same reason - the servers not being able to handle such large amounts of visitors. Even the University isn't able to deal with many thousands of downloads at the same time. Please have some patience; more mirrors are being added again.
