I have looked at the update log files, but all that shows is that the process starts to listen on the appropriate port, lists the updates, then does nothing else.
I have let the process run for up to 10 hours straight without any updates processing.
finally i tried to access directly, but get 'address not found'. i know spybot website is up because my friends can load it when i ask them to so my thought now is that i've been hijacked by some trojan that prevents anything on my system from updating/finding a fix.
below is my hjt log, please help me solve this problem! Logfile of Trend Micro Hijack This v2.0.2Scan saved at PM, on 4/25/2009Platform: Windows Vista (Win NT 6.00.1904)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16830)Boot mode: Normal Running processes: C:\Windows\system32\C:\Windows\system32\C:\Windows\Explorer.
The time and date of the current protection is showing as the last scan time though. I uninstalled Spybot but could not find Defender to uninstall that.

Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging.
If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware.
hi, i just tried to download sp3 for office 2003 through windows update and it failed to initiate a download.
sensing a problem, i tried to run spybot, but i get a 'program has stopped working' error message immediately every time.
My friends computer has recently been displaying the orange icon for MSE. I also saw a suggestion that it might be CCleaner causing problems.
We try to update this manually and it sticks halfway through the update. When we tried that we got a screen which said that MSE is up to date and ok but there might be problems with Defender and Spybot not updating.
