Updating Content Database Screen Appears Frozen
This screen may take several minutes to process depending on your computer. Please do not use ctrl-alt-del to end the Spore game while this process is running, just allow it to run for as long as it may take. This is a one time process and will not happen when you launch Spore the next time if it is allowed to complete.

    I downloaded the patch, and when I went to restart, my spore was missing from the games list. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game from the disc, and now it won’t work at all. Frustrated!
