    Default Cannot perform a scan or Update with spybot

    I have installed the latest spybot version 2.1 and i cannot perform a scan or even update. The start centre opens and it says in the upper right hand corner:
    Internet protection: off
    Update service stopped.

    I go to the services.msc and i see 3 spybot services. it says the Securtiy center service is started however the other 2. Scanner service and updating service have not. So i right click on both of these and click start. Each bring up a progress bar and gets abour half way through and freezes for about 30/40s and comes up with the following error:

    Windows could not start the Spybot-S&D 2 Scanner Service service on Local Computer.

    Error 1053: The service did not respone to the start or control request on a timely fashion.

    I have restarted my computer serveral times, unistalled spybot, redownloaded spybot but i am still unable to get this to function.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit: i am currently running Windows 7 64 Bit Ulimate
