Since you can post on here, I assume that the machine you are trying to update is connected to the internet. If so, then please check any firewall settings or Proxy settings in the browser to ensure nothing is configured improperly.

try to download the latest version of SpyBot directly from the vendor site at http://www.safer-networking.org and let us know if you can even get to that site.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if you still have issues updating the program.

try tapping f8 on bootup and choose safemode with networking, see if it updates there.

If it does, I would unload McCrappe, turn on the firewall and try a free AV like Avast, AVG or whatever. You may have to use MCPR.exe from the McCrappe website to uninstall all the registry values, or else nothing will work properly.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
