I ran Spybot last night, immunized everything, and soon after I got a pop-up saying...
Spybot-S&D reports that you want to download "Avenue A, Inc." This is a known threat. Do you want to BLOCK this download?
I clicked "yes", thinking I wouldn't see the pop-up again, but it keeps on asking me if I want to block it. Is there anywhere in Spybot that I can permanently block it so that the pop-up doesn't appear again?
What version of Spybot are you running? I have 1.2 and can't see what you can see on your drop down list. I've installed spywareblaster anyway now, so it should stop the pop-ups I was referring to (I hope)!
I'm running 1.2 as well and it there in my immunize part in the browser helpers section drop down list There are 3 options, display dialog when blocking,Ask for blocking confirmation,and block bad pages silently.
Well now spybot doesn't run at all after I uninstalled then reinstalled it. I figured I'd try that because I still couldn't see that immunize thing in the browser helper drop down list. Maybe it was corrupted. And dumb old me didn't create a restore point! Oh well, I'll learn by experience... and without spybot now it seems!
