Good morning m00nbl00d,

I must be one lucky 'sucker' because when I check for Spybot S&D updates it is almost instantaneous as was the case before I installed IE8 on my computer (Compaq Presario AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3300+, 2411MHz/1.93 GBs RAM, running Windows Xp Home, SP3., with IE8).

Maybe I am one of the lucky ones.
