spybot search and destroy v1.3rc4 available
by Marianna Schmudlach / April 21, 2004 4:09 AM PDT

Just to let u all know there is now a new release package of spybot v 1.3rc4, as all bugs reported in version rc3 have been fixed, so rc4 is out and ready to download at this link

http://www.spybot-updates.com/files/spybotsd13rc4.exe

Here is also the list of fixes that were made to rc3, that are now implemented in rc4 and are ok.


1. "Settings - Ignore products" doesn't show anything. Problem recognized. Problem fixed.

2. Shows old updates. Problem recognized. Will set MaxBuild flag of current updates asap to avoid updates for 1.2 shown in 1.3. MaxBuild now set to 20040413, meaning that all previous versions that need them will still show them.

3. Cookies fileset shows zero entries because cookies are detected through a helper file, not the fileset itself. Additionally list the number of detected products. Count now shown correctly

4. Startup tool is showing only first existing database entry, which could lead to misinterpretation of entries. Fixed - now if multiple entries for the same value exist, they will all be listed.

5. Removal of ******* trojan folders. Looks like it was readonly/system/hidden attributes set to each folder. Spybot-S&D is now cleaning those before removal for folders as well.

6. Monitor TeaTimer activity after terminated process. Found problem with scanning files on network drives... did let TeaTimer monitor a million app starts without a crash this night... previously a thousand were enough to hang the system...

7. Update Credits. Done

8. Avoid multiple instances of Spybot-S&D (old code was removed for 2003 compability)...

9. Make TeaTimer dialogs localized.

10. Add all domains that Immunize adds to the Restricted Zone to the Cookie-Block-List as well.
(correction: restricted zones already includes cookie blocking)

11. Let user choose during installation if TeaTimer and SDHelper should be installed.

12. Cookie immunization for 9x/ME. Fixed by doing this in HKEY_CURRENT_USER as well.
(update: is now done for all users)

13. TeaTimer and SDHelper checkboxes seem to be misbehaving sometimes.

Re:spybot search and destroy v1.3rc4 available

Marianna, I am confused with this. I have Spybot v1.2 and update shows that I am current. Do I need v1.3rc4 and why the direct download rather that through the normal update procedure?

Thanks,

Happy

I hope, you are NOT confused anymore Wink

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
