    I too have had problems at times with the update function.
    On occasion the program just locks up?

    I'm unaware of the exact cause of this behaviour.
    Most times, after a while I try again and update is succesful.

    Perhaps the server is busy??
    A fault in how the program behaves when unable to contact the uddate server?

    I'm truly not sure :?:

    No apology necessary!

    This behaviour in Spybot S&D is quite annoying even if not persistent.

    The software detects and cleans malware so well I suppose I'm willing to forgive it for this quirk?
    But it would be a plus if this didn't happen at all.

    Hijackthis was really useful once, permitted to stop a browser hyjack that Ad-Aware and spybot didn't see! And for SpywareGuard and Spyware blaster they protect "****" from installing like active-X protocols and other things... maybe it's overkill! Anyway that was to prevent another format... but i am starting to have shutdown problems on winXP now... maybe ill have to format anyway!

    I think Hijack This is a useful utility however, it may overlap with Spybot Search & Destroy's immunization capabilities :?:

    You only need proper protection once :thumb:

    I'm thinking that's a bit of an overkill :eek:

    personally, I only use Spybot S&D and it does well enough on it's own. I can see running adaware too, but even that seems a bit much to me. But running all of those just seems plain silly or singnals a case of exteme paranoia

    being careful when you surf and watching what you install will go a lot farther to keeping your system clean than redundant applicatoins
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
