G'day Folks, I've been trying to find out how to do a "manual update" of Spybot - in the docs ..without success....

updating spybot 2-17

Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies.

If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware.

Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging.

Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.

ie: There must be a better way (and I'm sure there is.... :-(( Please pass on your wise words of wisdom so that I (and possibly others), may extricate myself from this giant hole!

:-)) Many Thanks, Barry Hello, You can also download the updates manually: is the direct download link: download and run that file - it is self-installing.

Only needed if you do not want to use the update function integrated into Spybot-S&D.

Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications.

Some users have experienced issues with the latest update.
