When I was told to load and use Spybot S&D I couldn't get the update to load nor could I even check for updates. I think I asked in this forum or the Search & Destroy forums and I was told that if I couldn't get them to work then:
do a direct manual download of the update files:
It is a self extracting file, so after saving the download to disk just double click on the file, and it will install automatically.
THIS is what I've been doing for sometimes now, am I supposed to continue using that url above or am I supposed to be using a new one each time and if so where do I find them?
