Spybot was working ok until I reinstalled it then I got the error message. Could my Norton Firewall be stopping the connection. I looked at the firewall and Spybot is not restricted.

I have run the update with a 98SE, XP Home and XP Pro, also with Spybot 1.4 and 1.4 RC2, none will update, the XP machines give socket error and the 98SE gives an error retrieving file.

You can get the detection update here
