Many thanks xg - I do have the 1.3 but it hasn't updated for the past 3 months or so :(

Also there are seven items in there which cannot be eliminated. Ads relating to DAP (Dowload Accelerator) which I presume are harmless little beggars :D

oldie,

You wrote 'it hasn't updated for the past 3 months'. Does this mean you have it set to look for updates automatically at startup?.

If so, there was a thread at the Spybot Forum at Net Integration, where it was recommended that that setting should not be used at the moment (admittedly, the post was made last August and last edited three months ago, but it may still be good advice).

What happens when you try the manual update option?.

Just as a matter of interest, what is the date shown on the 'Info & Licence' page. Hopefully, it's 30th. August, if not you may have got updates for the beta version of 1.3.

Guys,

I do have a question about updating for Spybot. S & D. What about that Guardian or Immunization feature? Do I have to click on that each time I use the program, or the Guardian Immunizer only needed one time after the program is installed? What exactly does this feature do?

Oldie,

Looks like you have a problem with your copy of Spybot, or at least with the update process. Have you had a look at the Spybot Forum in case there's anything useful there?;http://forums.net-integration.net/index.php?showforum=28

As I understand it, the Immunization feature works like Javacool's SpywareBlaster in that it sets 'kill bits' which prevent known spyware/trackers etc. from being installed. Once turned on it is effective without having to be switched on at each boot. Every time Spybot is updated, you should go to Immunize and click on it once, so that the latest definitions are used. If you are running in Advanced mode you should really read through the Help files on these features.

I've got SpywareBlaster as well as Spybot and the makers of Spybot actually acknowledge that SpywareBlaster gives more protection against ActiveX 'drive by' installations.
