Hm.. My Spybot Search and Destroy program isn’t working. It will search for problems, but when I tell it to fix selected problems, then the program freezes up. Anyone have any clue what might be wrong, or know of any other anti-spyware programs I could download?

Try Lavasoft's Ad-Aware. I actually have them both on my home machine. You might try "fixing" them one at a time to see if there is 1 particular file that's causing a problem.

Other boring things to try:
1 - Reboot once or twice
2 - Kill some of your other running programs in case Spybot is actually running just fine, but doesn't have enough memory to run right.
3 - Uninstall and reinstall Spybot
4 - Check and make sure you're not using any of the things Spybot is trying to delete (e.g. WildTangent)

good luck
