    HI--
    I was wondering if someone could help me with this.
    I have Spybot-S&D and I have been having problems lately with trying to get updates for it. Whenever I am online and I click onto update, I get this:
    "Error--The parameter is incorrect"
    Then the whole thing freezes up and I have to restart my puter.
    So what is exactly is going on and how can I fix this.

    Thanks, rubyangel :eek:

    HI--
    thanks for getting back to me about this. I did uninstall and re-installed Spybot. And it still did the same thing. And I checked the languages in internet explorer and there is English (United States) (en-us) listed.
    So what i figured out on my own is that I need to have Spybot program up and running before I get online. Then I can press update and it will look up updates without it freezing up. Whenever I am online first, then click onto Spybot program everything freezes up.
    So thanks anyway for all of your help.

    thx---rubyangel :eek:

    After you check for updates and then check the box to get the update you want go up and pick another site to download the update from.
