Spybot and SP2

I've upgraded spybot to v1.3.1 but after a successful scan it won't 'fix' the problems. Does this just need an sp2 tweak? System: 2yr old Mesh 2100, no probs with Norton AV/Nero/Outlook/and ageing HP710 printer or Boot-up.Any ideas please

Hi Jim, Its basically things like 'Hitbox','Mediaplex',DoubleClick','Adviva' etc.I ran spybot again this evening-same thing,then 'prog not responding' although in the end it 'fixed'all 18 'problems'

I had exactly the same thing with spybot v1.3.1 as you mention it appears that the programme has stuck. Found out that if you leave it running it evenytually clears and fixes all found problems.

Hi JonnyTub, As i understand it, dso exploits were a problem with the old version of spybot which this new version is supposed to have cured. But who knows...

Hi RoadGiant, I'm not the only one having probs with the new spybot then? It just seems to take ages to do anything. Must be progress!

It may be some personal settings and/or conflict with another "anti" program as I am running XP SP2 and Spybot successfully! [Mesh also ;-)]

Hi Jim, v1.1 was always run in 'easy mode' as otherwise i don't know wot i'm doing. If i remember right, i downloaded from a link supplied by one of our respected forum boyz, "VoG".I didn't uninstall v1.1 first. I'll have a quick look at your suggestion but don't wanna get too involved before work (ie try later)
