Spybot search and destroy -Runs slowly and freezes

  alternator 14:44 11 Aug 2007

Can anyone suggest why when I run Spybot search and destroy it runs pretty slowly it takes approx 5mins to get to 6952/75905 Cool WWW search then it just stops if I click on the stop and try and exit it registers as an unresponding program. It used to run fine, but I have been away for a couple of month and the family have been on the computer, so I am not sure if anything has been changed
I am running XP fully updated, AVG virus checker fully updated and the latest virus scan found no problems.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling with the same result
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Sorry the link was of no help, I was thinking along the lines that you may have had a HT processor set-up as referred to in the last post of my link.
My only other suggestion would be to look around their forum for a possible solution.

Thanks Marg7 I already ran CWShredder it picked up a copy of click here search and removed it but I am afraid that didn't help. By the look of the website it is not an uncommon problem. I will keep trying and will post back if I have any more luck.
Cheers all
