Spybot 1.2 and 1.3 final

  iarno 12:29 16 May 2004

Idownloaded Spybot 1.3 and all was well for 2 days i then started to get problems with my computer. I'm running winme.

I read in a thread somewhere that others had probs as well and went back to sptbot 1.2.

So i done a recovery of all probs found by 1.3 and done a complete deletion. Then reinstalled 1.2, done a search and it said i had no probs.

computer has behaved itself since (touch wood).

My query is can I or will I still be able to get updates for spybot 1.2.

cheers for any info. I.

I dout it as there has not been any updates for 1.2 for sometime. It's now been overtaken by 1.3 where all the efforts will go.

But you never know.

Email him, he replied to me.

Cheers for info. I did think that might be the case as I have not noticed any updates recently.

Will send him an e-mail later.

Thanks again. I.

Strange one this, seems a few people are having problems with 1.3! I downloaded and installed over the top of 1.2 when Powerless fist informed us of the release and after running it every night since there have been no problems.

i have had no problems with 1.3 but my friend who runs similar system to mine has had nothing but probs and has reverted to 1.2. the only difference in setup was that i use spywareblaster and he tried to use 1.3 to block spyware.

I downloaded after uninstalling 1.2 and have had no problems with the new version.

iarno, try downloading it from download.com f you didn;t get it there to start with. I had problems with the first link put up for it, but I reinstalled it from download.com and it seems ok now.

Same as most i download from download.com straight over 1.2 ans touch wood no probs.

Installed new version over old, and so far working very good. Have noticed that it keeps picking up XerOx, which other devices seem to miss.

The new Spybot works with SpywareBlaster, as it suggested that I used SpywareBlaster to help solve a problem.Now that's a suprise.

Recently downloaded 1.3 over 1.2 everytime I ran a scan I had 2 warning triangles with something in german. Below that I had congratulations no items found but then I got the widows error message and spybot closed down. Downloaded on my kids pc over 1.2 and they run ok. Uninstalled from my own and reinstalled from major geeks "touch wood" has run ok since.
