Spybot-S&D 1.2

  hoverman 13:20 30 Mar 2003

I have just installed the latest version of Spybot. How do I access settings and tools etc? There are no tabs shown below the 5 icons on the left side of the main screen as indicated in the tutorial illustrations.

which Icons do you have on the left?

are there any tabs above?

They've introduced 'easy' and 'advanced'modes in this version with all the settings in the latter- try double clicking SpybotS&D.exe in your Progs folder which should open to the 'advanced' mode to allow access.

The shortcut on my install had a switch as follows, /easymode.

I changed it to the following, /advancedmode nad it now opens with all the options showing.

The icons are: Search & Destroy, Recovery, Immunize, Update and Donations. There are no tabs either above or below these. I suspect that the illustrations are applicable to an earlier version of Spybot. Am I correct?

Many thanks - that's solved the issue.

As Dave Bowman says check the target properties of your shortcut and simply delete the appended easy switch.

In Start>Programs Spybot S and D lists both the Easy and Advanced versions - just click on the one you want and delete the other if required.
