      Happened to me. Updated spybot and got a virus from the update.

      Basically, never update from any site besides spy-bot, dumb move on my part but just thought I would share it.

      That’s odd, I’ve never seen that in all the years I’ve used SpyBot. Which AV picked it up? What did it say it was? And which server were you getting the updates from?

      It wouldn’t update from the stock servers for some reason so I went on google and looked for it. It was from some odd download site, I think fulldls.com or something similar.

      Anyway it was CalmWin that picked it up (I had it run it from an external drive because I couldn’t even boot anymore)
