I run Spybot 1.04 on a Me system in auto check mode. This may or may not help.
I have to run the windows task scheduler along with the spybot scheduler.
The sequence to set up task scheduler is start>programs>accessories>system tools>scheduled task>add scheduled task This brings up the wizard needed to schedule Spybot.
Hope this helps
I'm having some trouble with Spybot S&D and I could use a little help. I can't seem to get the scheduler to work. I'm sure I went through each step properly,
(click>ADD,click>EDIT, then set the time I want it to run.) I set it to run every day at 3:00am. But it doesn't. On the Scheduler screen it posts;
Next run time: (My settings do appear here)
Last run time: (This is blank)
Schedule: (My settings start date)
Status: (the task has not run yet)
The scheduler hasn't worked at all since I installed Spybot several months ago. I uninstalled it and downloaded it again yesterday and tried scheduling it,
and I got the same results. I believe I've tried everything and to no avail. So I figured it's time to post.
I run manuel scans often but I sure would like the convienence of it running on it's own. Any help would be great. Here's some info...
I have Windows XP SP2. I have sbc yahoo DSL. My computer is on 24/7. Besides Spybot S&D I also run AD-Aware, and I run eTrust EZ Antivirus.
