    I've just downloaded SpyBot S&D (i think its 1.2, i got it from www.download.com). When I try to open it it appears then after a few seconds just dissapears.

    I've tried re-starting my PC and re-installing but I still get the same result.

    I really need SpyBot to work as my internet is going real slow, and the webpages on I.E sometiems dont even show up or either load really slow and I think its probably spyware thats causing the problem. If anyones got any soloutions for this too please say.

    Thanks.

    I have a thought. Try doing an online scan for spyware, adware, keyloggers, etc at Pest Patrol's PestScan. This software will find many of the things that Spybot will find.

    If you can I'd also run CoolWebshredder, you might have some BHOs slowing you down, and CWS will dispose of some. Also, it will not harm anything in the process.

    I suppose you have cleaned your history, temp. files and cache?I'm not sure this is the solution, but give it a go.
