    Sometimes i get that also.Especially when too many people download the updates.
    I suppose,like Shadowwar said, try another server, for instance instead of "SpybotSD.de" use "EonAustralie".
    It worked when i did that.

    Yes, as ronny says.. the EON[Australia] site is very reliable.. never had a problem with it. It's the only one I use....

    also... FIRST you have to "check" for updates, THEN you can have the option of selecting a mirror site, BEFORE hitting the Download button ok.. :) [in case you did not know that ;) ]

    Cheers, Adrian

    I had it the other day, even when using the Australian Server, there ended up being only the USA Server that wasn't affected.

    Like Tassie_Devils said, in general have found that the Aussie Server seems to work best...

    Cheers :D
