Can anyone explain to me why Spybot is freezing at

Running bot-check (2943/5835 C2.lop)

It will freeze there for like 10 minutes then it will continue.
It has never done this before.

My AdAware does the same thing..it freezes for a long time then it continues.

This is from the S&D faq pages:

Why does the scan hang during detection of C2.lop?

The exact reason isn't yet known, as this error seems to be sporadic and only on a few machines, but there's a simple way around it. Start Spybot-S&D in advanced mode, open the Excludes section, and select C2.lop for exclusion of the scan (tick the checkbox in front of the C2.lop entry). This will avoid scan of C2.lop until a bugfix comes out (soon).

Update (May 7th): the reason for this hang is a corrupted file, located either in the Temp or in the Application Data folder. There is an update available that can deal with this problem; if you check for updates, be sure to download the one named File check library. Or download the manual updater if you don't want to use the update function.

What version of Spybot are you using? The most current version is 1.3 Beta 6. There are several obvious differences between the 1.2 and 1.3 versions, but you still want to get rid of the RED entries and just leave the green entries alone.
