Hi.
Hope you can help me out.
Whenever I switch on my computer, Spybot starts a scan . If I do not cancel the scan, it needs over an hour to finish the scan (nearly 300,000 files):oops:.
Deinstalling Spybot results in a message being displaced that SpybotSD.Exe is not present and that I should use the search function to check for it.

Thanks
