    After running spybot it said some thing like remove so and so files during next time I log in. I can get to the log in panel but once I click on a user to log in it starts up a little.. I see my background, but before I can see start menu or icon it logs out by itself. How do you think I can fix this?

    Welcome to the forums


    You can go into the control panel and select the install/remove option. then you can uninstall spybot, then reinstall it. Make sure you look in the advanced settings - there are settings there you can check for autorun etc...doc

    dont forget to run the update, dont forget to turn on teatimer

    I'm having a similar problem, except I can't get to the control panel. When windows loads the first time, it goes straight to asking me to select a profile and when i select my profile, I have the same problem as the originator of this thread. It tries to load my profile, but then automatically logs me off. Any suggestions?

    Another thing is that if spybot cannot remove something at the time of the scan, but can remove it next reboot - then it will. You wont be able to control it, it just does it and is gone. That may be what you are describing...doc
