  1. As I'm sure Spybot S&D users know, Spybot S&D def. updates every Wednesday. This morning,I tried twice to update mine but it kept telling me there were none so I googled Spybot S&D & found this http://www.safer-networking.org/ a totally different website or am I incorrect?
    I ended up downloading the updates from that website & later I got another small update thru the program.
    Is that the "NEW" home of Spybot S&D?

    I think they just updated the web page.

    It's OK. To verify, open your Spybot S&D and under the tab "Help" click "Home page" to see where it takes you.

    In case you feel yours has already been tampered with, I've just checked mine for you and it takes me to the site you mention.

    On a side note:

    I've not used anti-spyware the last few years. Spybot S&D looks more professional than I remember. From what I remember their site did resembled what is now known as Windows 8 Metro, blocky with an 4-bit color pallet.
