traceroute times out

I'm trying to trace some spam, but traceroute keeps timing out. I get:

Traceroute to, 30 max hops, 38 byte packets
1 * * *
2 * * *
etc, etc

Tracert works fine on my windows machine so I doubt it's something external. I can ping and dig, I don't know what else to try. Maybe I need to load a module? Also when I tracert in windows if it times out it says so, while traceroute does not. I'm thinking this is just the difference between the commands but maybe not. Or is there a better command I could use?

Try traceroute with the -I switch to use the same method as Windows tracert.
Another tool you should have is tcptraceroute which gets around some types of filtering.
