View Full Version : Spybot v1.3
:confused: I recently ran Spybot S&D and received various updates (detection rules .....)
One change that I've noticed is in the Spybot S&D Resident pop up window when using IE, such as "Spybot-S&D reports that you want to download Mediaplex" and provides a YES or NO button to click.
In the past, this window continued to say something like "Do you want to block this download?", followed by the Yes or No choice.
In the current version, what am I saying Yes to if I click YES, and conversely, what am I saying No to if I click NO?
The title of this topic is Spybot version 1.3 yet you say you have the latest version.
Do you know version 1.4 has been released?
