    Default free Version 2.1 manual updates

    Simply wondering IF there is a site/link etc to manually update the free version 2.1 I have been unable to find anything definitive in the forums/faq. Mostly just issues with update failures etc. Please advise, thank you

    You can still use the manual updater, which is available on the download part of our website - it's called Detection Updates.
    Here is the direct-update-link where you can reach the latest update everytime.
    Please use the Spybot 2 program folder as Destination Folder to store the update, by default:
    Windows XP: C:\Program Files\Spybot Search & Destroy 2
    Windows Vista or Windows 7 or Windows 8: C:\Programs (x86)\Spybot Search & Destroy 2

    Best regards

    Default Updates

    Thank you Sandra.

    I was able to manually run the updates. For some reason, it would not allow me to run the 1.62 version because I "did not have network connection." That pesky win32.downloader.gen still picked up.
