spybot SD unable to download updates

  Baslla321 13:41 06 Mar 2004

I have been trying for some time to get the above but although I has three new updated items to download, it just freezes and I am told that it is not responding. Has anyone experienced this? or is it my software?

Where are you downloading it from? People seem to find Australia the most reliable option.

Read this prob. here last night I think.

Click on....is it Uniden? then drop down to the Australia link.

Try to search and download again.

Any good?

Spybot normally starts updating automatically, so I dont understans what u mean. Are U suggesting that I uninstall and then reinstall the program ?

if the servers are busy you may get an error or it may hang.

try later.

or download and install the detection and tools updates manually from click here

I am not suggesting you resinstall Spybot.

When you start Spybot, click the option to check for updates. When the window opens, choose the option of where you want to download from.

No one has suggested, in any way, that you uninstall and then reinstall S and D, only to download updates manually i.e. click on Check For Updates - if there are any, to then select EON (Australia) from the mirror servers drop down menu by the Download button and then click on Download.

You post, I type...:-)

ps.i think nick_j007 means click choose mirror when viewing the online tab within spybot to choose a download from a different server.

oops! sorry :-)

Thanks! I will try again.
