    Best place to download Spybot?

    Hi all.

    I'd like to download Spybot to block spyware as I've heard it's the best.
    I've also heard there are fake spybot sites that actually give you spyware
    when you think you're downloading Spybot.

    So, is spybot.com the legitimate site, or is there a better, safer site.
    Much thanks to any who can shed some light on this.
