To get: Past Spybot Immunize defs (June 10th/05?)

Have a laptop (XP Home), never been on net, never the less I keep Spybot 1.4 (amoung others) updated on it by manually transferring defs to thumb drive & then to laptop(current to June 24th).
It seems that although I got main includes, there was a separate immunization defs I got on my desktop(via built in installer), June 10th I think, which I neglected to get for Laptop. Desktop shows 6551 blocked but laptop is still in the 1500 range. I have been unable, at Main site, to find an active link with the immunization defs I'm missing. Anyone have a way or address (other than setting up for net install)? Thanks in advance. Happy

defs from the most recent, which is the 24th, the older ones would be included. You can't go by the number in the immunization to tell if you have the most current defs anyway because many times, including the last 2, even though there were new defs, there aren't always new ones added to the blocking portion, just to the scanning portion of Spybot. The huge number discrepancy would normally mean that the 2 computers have different operating systems. I have no idea why your laptop is only blocking 1500 unless the second button (green plus sign) was never hit, or it's still the 1.3 version, or it is corrupted in some way. This link is for a manual download of the 6/24 detections if it helps any, just pick the correct one.

downloaded the updates via internal updater for desktop, that the main includes and the immunization includes were 2 separate listings each with their own box to tick. This would indicate that immunizations aren't included in the main one.
The problem was when I went to the site, I couldn't find a separate file for immunizations, only the main plus assorted Add-Ons (skins,regfile, etc). Thanks again. Happy

my mistake. I was under the impression that the immunization defs were included with the "includes.zip". I guess they're not. Learn something new every day. LOL Glad Donna got you set up though. Grin
