I have Spybot S&D 1.3 newly installed and updated to run on my Win98 SE system. Spybot appears to detect threats as normal (Spybot S&D 1.2 worked like a charm) but when I click on 'Fix' Spybot S&D freezes with an indicated 2 seconds elapsed.
This 'Non-responding' state occurs even if I have prior to scanning, stopped all other tasks running.
Spybot S&D 1.3 has never run to a completed fix for me.
Thanks Jim Spybot S&D 1.3 did run in safe mode, albeit after a misleading scan after which Spybot declared one scanning error and 'Congratulations' etc in the scan result list. On an immediate second scan attempt (without closing Spybot S&D), 22 threats (previously identified during failed fix attempts) were identified and successfuly fixed.
I am suspicious of McAfee's VirusScan 8.0.41 and in particular SpamKiller 5.0.80. I'll now do the digging to identify the culprit process.
