    Spybot Cannot Install

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by t8ntlikly on 21-Jun-08 07:20. I just tried a couple f the other servers and they also are unable to connect to the server.)</P>When I try to install Spybot it goes as far as trying to resolve connection with server. I have tried 2 of their servers Security works and Safer Networking. Any ideas other than trying them all?
    Thanks John

    I just tried the first Safer Networking mirror and had no problem downloading Spybot S&D.
    Do you have problems reaching other websites?

    So
    - There's no problem with the Spybot mirrors (I tried a few others in the meantime)
    - There's no problem with your interner connection
    And yet you can't download Spybot S&D. Strange...
    Could your PC be infected with malware that prevents security software from being downloaded and installed?

    The last scan for virus was on 6/14, and nothing was found. I remember a few weeks back that I tried to install it on a friends computer from here using a wired connection and got the same message. I recently reformatted my HD and now I am getting it also.
    Thanks John

    Well, I am not sure either. But I kept at it and it finally installed and is running now.
