Hi, I just installed spybot and for some reason the main window does not open. As soon as I double cicked the icon on the desktop, it starts to scan by opening up a small window "Check in Progress" and the closes by itself when it is done. Could some one tell me how do I set preferences and how do I see what are the spywares that spybot identifies and removes it.

FYI: My kazaa media desktop does not open after I performed this scan. I know this can be re installed. but how do I work with the actual spybot.

Thanks for your help in advacne.

Hi vaaliben, and welcome to TSG.. :)

You can download a small tool that will do those changes for you: http://spybot.eon.net.au/files/resetsettings.zip

Cocerning the above tool, the link from the Spybot own help file seems to be broken, but the above link works (From Spybot's online help page).

Hope that helps.

Oh, and there is so much spyware in Kazaa that it will end up disabled after a scan. You should change to Kazaalite. http://www.kazaalite.tk/ but first get rid of Kazaa with this program http://www.webattack.com/get/kazaagone.shtml

Cheers

Liam

wow! it worked the way I just wanted. Thanks e-liam.

but I have a question Xupiter appeared again. and spybot deleted it. Is it because that I am using MYIE2 browser. I just learned from another user that, MYIE2 uses UCMORE, another spyware that spybot does not detect.

anyways I am going to uninstall MYIE2 and see if UCMORE appears in the progress bar while spybot scans for problem.

Thanks again e-liam.

Hi Vaaliben,

I'm glad you got spybot up and running. :)

I haven't heard of MyIE2 causing problems before, but it's always possible. I'd be surprised if Spybot didn't detect this spyware. Spybot updated late last week, so it would have to be very new. It's possible that Spybot is unable to remove all variants though. As far as the checks that Spybot makes, that are defined in the status bar.. these are all 471 (ish) bots that it looks for, and by no means will you have them all, it just shows you what is being checked in real time.

We can check it out for you, anyway. (y) :) Could you please download 'Hijack This!' from http://www.spywareinfo.com/files/hijackthis.zip
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".
When the scan is finished, click "Save Log", and copy and paste it in a reply.

This will give us a rundown of what’s going on in your PC. One of us here will be glad to analyse it for you. Don’t fix anything yourself yet, as a lot of the stuff on that list will be harmless or required.

Cheers

Liam
