    Default SpyBot will not execute

    Infected computer

    Down loaded SB 1.6. Had to install w/o updates as I was getting the updater could not be gotten 404 error. Completed install but now when I try to start the "wait icon" appears for a little while and then nothing.

    Checked the TaskManager and it is not executing.

    Is this because I have not downloaded the rules file ?

    Also, whatever virus/malware I have (antivirus 2009 and spyware guard 2008) it does not want me to get to your site. I'm constantly being redirected.

    Any help is appreciated.
