continued spybot upgrade failure on win98se

  p;3 17:05 10 Feb 2008

first attempt was click here
has anyone ON win98se managed to successfully upgrade TO the new spybot version and have it up and running ?
I have reinstalled the 1.4 version again and get the failure again

I am going to experiment with my other 98se machine ; however,while experimenting om my XP machine to check the validity of the upgrade, it worked successfully

I get this strange message when I an uploading the update?

click here

this tells me the update is wrong?

I had same problem,did you just upgrade as thats the problen,the solution is to uninstall spybot1.5 ( I deleted the folder in progam file as well, if you do this IT MUST BE AFTER you have uninstalled the program)then do a clean install then all should be fine,my 98se setup upgrades OK

I have tried various methods; I have done an upgrade within the program itself, I have completely uninstalled spybot via control panel BUT I have NOT removed the program files folder in My Computer ; I have done a complete reinstall from the spybot 1.5 exe

ALL methods lead to the same result of a complete failure

I will try experimenting on my other 98se machine; I may need to abandon this update and await a more stable version

BUT WHY is this happening? what is so strange or odd about this update that is causing so much grief?
