Well everytime I run Spybot S&D It scans like 10 % then it just out of nowhere stops responding. Do you guys know anything that would cause this to happen?

It seems to stop when it gets to a file called "WebDialer"

WebDialer may be (trying to) shut off Spybot.

A lot of really nasty malware/spyware will try to render the program trying to shut them down, useless. It appears WebDialer is pretty nasty, look here.

You might want to grabs anoter Anti-spyware program, like AdAware.
