More trouble with SPYBOT, Help!

  1. Well, it seems my computer is infected with adware galore and a trojan or two, as Avast tells me I have a few versions of Trojan-gen. While this might be a case of mistaken identity, I doubt it...

    Back to Spybot. I've been trying to download updates for it, and it keeps on telling me the files are corrupted and doesn't let me download them. I finally opted to uninstall it and start over with a new version. However, it was impossible for me to reinstall Spybot. After a long time and my computer acting extra-slow, I got the following message:


    The installer you are trying to use is corrupted or incomplete.

    This could be the result of a damaged disk, a failed download, or a virus.

    You mey want to contact the autor of this installer to obtain a new copy.

    It may be possible to skip this check using the \NCRC command line switch. (NOT RECCOMMENDED).

    Anyway, don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

    Also, I downloaded AVG Anti virus and it found a trojan horse downloader.Itsbar.7.K, maybe that has something to do with it?

    Very Sorry

    I'm sorry. Didn't mean to do that. I thought it was a different problem, seeing as it's spybot that's not working and I can't install it. Anyway, I apologize.
