recently my pc had to have processor/ram replaced together with a reformat. i had the opportunity to save some data to another drive, i saved some security progs spybot being one of them, they were all transferred back after re format but i have a prob with spybot in tha it seems to work in reverse now, when i click on desktop it scans immediately and the comes up with what used to be the opening window allowing update checks etc, checking for updates is done in secs and says no updates, being suspicious and knowing there is vers 1.2 about i tried to uninstall via add remove progs and all it does is run a scan and will not be removed, went to the home page to try d/load new vers download manager says cant find hosts, tried direct at download.com page changes to download in progress and nothing happens, (not even the window asking if i want to save or run) any ideas folks.
Can you type in search and delete any spybot files which show? Then go into registry and delete spybot folder (if you haven't done reg editing be careful and b/up 1st). Spybot has a habit of going awol, and cleaning up after it takes a bit of digging. (I only use adaware now).
