Spybot update problem

  Tefal 14:19 16 Jul 2004

Hi Folks

I have tried several times over the past two weeks to download Spybot's update and keep revieving the folowing error message: Error retrieving update into file.

Has anyone any idea what I'm doing wrong?

O/S = XP Pro

did you happen to try to change the download location ?

Thanks for your reply, but I've done nothing to alter any settings, so the location should still be 'as was'.

Are you meaning Search and Destroy from 1.2 to 1.3?

I've downloaded this twice, once for myself (XP Pro) and for a friend (Windows98SE); after uninstalling 1.2 from Add/Remove Programs I then downloaded and installed 1.3.

In both cases the 1.2 .exe file was modified and updated to 1.3 (I keep a backup in my FreshDownload Desktop folder). The 1.2 file is dated May 30th.

Click on the arrow to the left of 'Download updates' and select 'Europe'.

Thanks for your help folks, still 'no joy' so I'll remove the programn and download it again.
