a reason why Spybot won't run on my pc?

I have my laptop running XP Pro and wanted to use Spybot but it just doesn't seem to want to run on my pc. when I start the scan it just freezes. I have to close it by doing the Ctrl-Alt-Del process. any ideas?

I have the same problem when I check for updates. I just change the server to an American server and that fixes that problem.

Sorry I don't have any issue scanning with spybot.

Something similar happened to me when I made some changes in the Advanced Options. I set it to run the program automatically, and to minimize on startup. The program would run in the taskbar but didn't appear to be doing anything (although it was running the scan). The bad thing about Spybot is if you change these settings you can't get back in to change it back without changing the configuration.ini file. Don't know if that helped, but good luck either way.
