If your Spybot is showing no updates available then you may need to upgrade to version 1.3
If you get a checksum error select another download mirror site from the drop down box within Spybot.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm,

The usual problem, no matter what server I use I always get a bad checksum until finally after much patience and further trying it will eventually be correct, but not yet.

I have Spybot 1.3 and on the strength of andrew 93's post, I updated a few minutes ago.
I opened the program & used the Update buttons. No problem.

I don't have any problems with AVG or any other d/l's that I make, sometimes 160 meg on dialup, which takes all night, but check this out:

I used to have problems with the downloads but that was when I was on dialup, no problems since I changed to JetStream - keep trying, there is a download there and if the Aussie EON site is showing the download being available then try that one - it usually gives me the least trouble.

I have d/l'ed the zip using Star d/l but how do I update Spybot now that I have the zip on my hard drive?

Sorry I can't help you with an analysis, zqwerty.
(I'm a newbie who doesn't know about checksum stuff & mirrors).
But I'm also on dialup (Win98SE with low specs) so there's no magic at this end. I just searched for updates in the program.. then gottit.
Only thing is, I changed recently to Firefox as my browser. Maybe the problem is with Internet Explorer?

Hi,
Until a few weeks ago, I was only using IE, now I use Firefox.

I update Spybot (v1.3 -upgraded 17/5/04), AVG, and Ad-Aware via the programs themselves and have never (touch wood) received a Check sum error. In fact have never received any error while downloading anything.

Don't know why, but very glad nevertheless. Hope someone is able to help out with your problem.

Regards Marg.

checksum error explained here (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/faq/20.html) and have you ever wondered who is "the most wonderful girl on earth" on the licence page? Sounds like unrequited love (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/faq/29.html) to me - or should that be stalking?
:D

Hi,

When I did a Spybot 1.3 check on my computer this morning it didn't pick up anything at all.

BUT, as soon as I downloaded the latest update, and ran Spybot again, it found 7 red entries relating to " eAccelerator" affecting my registry and one of the registry entries was the IE toolbar. The last time I used IE was a few days ago to check for updates.

So guess this last download was something to do with eAccelerator.

Just when I was getting so smug about not ever finding any intruders in my computer. Good reality check for me anyway.

Marg.
