    Default Update Issue

    I just installed Spybot and had to bypass the inital updates becuase it wouldn't go. Now, after the install, I cannot get the updates to go through. Instead I get "Error retreiving update info file" I do not have firewall enabled, and ahve searched for a solution. I cannot navigate to the download page ( from the infected computer. Since I cannot do the inital scan without first updating, I was wondering if anyone had a solution Thanks!

    Try downloading the detection updates file (spybotsd_includes.exe) file using the following address:

    Detection updates© 2008-08-13 - product description
    md5: 886B9672F34427F202EEF821B366D972
    This updates the detection rules. Only needed if you do not want to use the update function integrated into Spybot-S&D.
