There is a problem with Spybot which they are working on. In the meantime you can get round it by excluding c2lop.

Start Spybot in advanced mode (start, program) then click on 'excludes'. Now find c2lop in the list and tick.

You should now find that Spybot won't freeze.

Hi, i tried that but it stll freezes on web update

I just tried the update and had the same problem.
I think it must be a server problem at the Spybot end.
I'll try again later.

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.

I always use the Australia link. I have just run a scan and it skipped straight through c2lop without a pause.

Will try the australia link can sone one tell me where i find the link?,and i dissagree think spybot is good and i do use adaware as well and spyware blaster all with no problems until this.

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.

Thanks to all just updated without any problems from Australia.
