Spybot immunization

by eelnavi / January 1, 2009 12:54 AM PST

Windows XP version 2002 SP2 home edition
AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1800+
1.53Ghz, 512 mb of RAM

Currently have following utilities: Avast, Ad-aware, Spybot, Spywareblaster, CWshredder, Ccleaner, ATF-cleaner. (Might install Hijack This)

When I immunize in Spybot, everything is protected. For the 1st time there were still some that were unprotected (20650 actually!). They were found in the following categories:

-default (Images)
-default (Installations)
-default (Popups)

IE (32 bit)
-\Software (Domains)
-\Software (Secure Domains)

IE (32/64 bit)
-.Default (Domains)
-.Default (Secure Domains)
-Administrator (Domains)
-Administrator (Secure Domains)
-Temp (Cookies)
-Temp (Domains)
-Temp (IPs)
-Temp (Secure Domains)
-in (Secure Domains) and (Domains) of 3 different user accounts

-Global (Hosts)

What needs to be done? Thanks

Go to the immunization part of the program and hit the "undo" button at the top. After that is done, hit the "green immunize" button again and see if that fixes it. Make sure all your browsers are closed when you do it.

The 'undo' tip kind of worked. Still have 20305 unprotected.

IE (32 bit)
- Temp (Cookies)= 193
- Temp (Domains)= 10038
- Temp (IPs) = 36
- Temp (Secure Domains)= 10038

number as you do but mine are protected and not unprotected. There have been many bugs in this featrue of Spybot for many years but they may have a may of fixing it besides the undo thing that I don't know about so maybe if you checked the Spybot forum, you might see a suggestion.

versions of Ad-Aware (2008) there was reported conflicts w/ that & Spybot (Tea Timer in particular, if memory serves). Similar conflict w/ AVG 8. This could be the source of the problem. No problem w/ the now defunct Ad-Aware SE (sob!). personally, I'm keeping Spybot (for now) and the new AAW will not be going on. Just me. Happy

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
