I've searched everywhere for this but can't find another instance so assume it's not already covered.
I am running an almost new Windows 7 64 bit machine (Professional, SP1).
I am trying to upgrade IE 8 to 9 (64 bit version) but the installer crashes as soon as it starts. This happens whether I let Windows pull the update or download and install manually.
The same happens occasionally just trying to open files in an Explorer window - Explorer is forced to restart.
The reason I think this is a Spybot issue is the error signature:

The fault module file - SDHook64.dll - only exists on my machine in the Spybot library folder.
Searches have tried to steer me to problem with a dll file called SBHook64.dll involving Kaspersky A/V 6 (which I do run) but that file does not exist on my system.
Does anyone know why this Spybot library file might be causing these program crashes? Or has Windows pointed the finger at an innocent file?
