    Default Spybot 1.6.2 no more updates?

    I use Spybot 1.6.2 on Windows 7. Yesterday I wanted to update but, there is a message No new updates.

    Let's see. The latest updates would have came out on Wednesday. So, if you had updated on that day, those are the latest available.
    If you didn't update then, and got no new updates yesterday, then you could download and install the manual detection updates instead, if you wish. Those are available here:
    https://www.safer-networking.org/dl/
    Manual detection updates for Spybot – Search & Destroy®, MD5 sum: 799AFFB6BB7719DC432C9A5ABEB6A456
    On Windows 7, the manual updates should be installed to C:\Program Files (x86)\Spybot – Search & Destroy, most likely.

    Okay, good ,glad you're getting the manual updates.

    Yes, since you downloaded new and deleted the Spybot folder, then it should have given you updates.
    The only thing I could find for Spybot 1.6.2 that seems to fit is this:
    https://www.safer-networking.org/faq...e-not-working/
    But that's probably not the problem if you've had Spybot installed for a while.

    A few years back, Spybot 1.6.2 users weren't getting updates for a bit:
    https://forums.spybot.info/showthrea...l=1#post453848
    The updates should be released this Wednesday. Could you wait until then and try another update?
    If you don't get new updates Wednesday, you could either open a support ticket and tell them:
    https://www.safer-networking.org/support/ticket/
    Or, you could open a new thread on this forum and say there are no newer updates this week, and there were no updates last week either. (the reason for a new thread is because I have posted in this one, and if you open a new one Wednesday it will be likelier to be seen.)

    Hi derking708,

    there was an error in the updates. A file was corrupted. This has now been corrected and updates should be available again. Thank you for your hint.
