    Thats another problem, the select mirror option does not open up it stays at no mirror selected. After searching for updates im getting no updates available, couldnt be right I just installed Spybot. I know im not alone found 2 others who downloaded Spybot today having the same problem updating Spybot after installing

    I had the very same problem along time ago and it was suggested to uninstall and the download it again and reinstall. It worked fine. Also I have found if you choose the UniDo (Europe) it seems to be the most reliable.
    After I did this I have never had a problem and I love SpyBot- it works very well!
    Good luck.
    Cheers.
