I didn't check to see if mine said final on it before I downloaded the fix on it Mark but I clicked on the second link that Donna posted which is from Safer-Networking per her instructions and it installed the 1-31TX.exe version and it worked fine for me. This is a copy of her post.
Do not uninstall your version. The said update is a fix for the current version stable version of SSD. It is a fix for the DSO Exploit detections which we've been waiting for
Just download it from http://www.safer-networking.org/files/spybotsd131tx.exe
then open the spybotsd131tx.exe file, it will show the installation wizard. When done, you should see your SSD version as 1.3.1TX
Donna and others have mentioned the "fix" for Spybot Search & Destroy in a previous thread for "Updates for October 25th 2004".
I didn't want to post there as that thread seems to be only for update information, and not other queries, hence this new thread.
I am confused about the version of Spybot S&D I am using.
The advice is that we must be running Spybot S&D version 1.3 Final before upgrading the program to install the fix.
Can I be absolutely simple minded about this?
My version of Spybot S&D is 1.3. It "does not" say 1.3 Final.
This might be important because the advice at MajorGeeks.com is that the fix can only be applied to Spybot S&D 1.3 Final, and so if I haven't got that, I must download 1.3 Final , uninstall any previous version, and install 1.3 Final before I apply the fix.
So, do I have 1.3 Final? Or do I have 1.3 which is not Final and therefore I must download 1.3 Final, uninstall my 1.3, install 1.3 Final, and then download and install the patch.
My head hurts!!
I have downloaded the 1.3 Final program from MajorGeeks, but the file name is spybot13.exe. It's the same as the previous spybot13.exe and gives no clues whether it is a final version or not.
Any comments or advice? Or am I just being silly.
BTW, I looked at Spybots forums. there seems to be a little confusion there as well. But then I might just be sensitive,
