I have Spybot+AV and it says internet protection is full and that it is being updated. I don't have live protection enabled because it slows down my system so much. But System Mechanic (iolo) gives me a warning that I don't have any real time anti-virus protection. Also a computer repair person told me I don't have any anti-virus running. He said there should be an icon in the lower right toolbar if it was running. How can I check to see whether Spybot AV is working?

Another issue is that it says it's being updated but when I click on update I get a lot of updates installed. Seems like if it was being updated I wouldn't be able to install more updates.
