Spybot-search & Destroy runs and then hangs

I have a new laptop running XP (SP1). I loaded Spybot from a PCAdvisor cd and tried to run it. However very soon after starting it hangs - within a minute or two. An hourglass appears within the Spybot window, and when I try to close the window a message comes up saying that it is not responding. I have uninstaled it and downloaded a copy online but still get the same results.
Any thouights

I had Spybot but then got rid of it as you have to run it manually everytime,an alternative is Microsofts Anti-Spyware which is a free download from their Download site,its in a beta stage at present but its very good,as it will run in the background and pop with an alert if it spyware and then gives you the option to remove.Give it a try
