Complete uninstall, reboot and reinstall fixed mine.

Or try downloading from one of the alternative mirrors in the dropdown menu

So shall i un-install it then download it or get it of the cover disc again?

But, selected the USA as a download site and all was well. I think it's probably just server congestion.

As leo49 has already said, try another site.

Yes, completly un-install, and use a cd cover disk,which will only takes a few seconds. Downlowding from the internet will take a little longer, depending on your internet connection. Do not forget, to check and reconfigure after new installation.

Click on 'Search for Updates' and then on the next screen click on the down arrow at middle top to display list of sites. I do not agree with wizkidwall_03 that Spybot is rubbish. Often it will pick up things Ad-Aware misses, and vice versa.

Chose the

Spybot freezes on updating when the site is busy. Try downloading from a different mirror site - EON (Australia) is pretty good.

I have just downloaded from EON (Australia) with no problem.
