Zen: Ok, well I reimmunized anyway. I can't remember how long the scan took in normal mode, but in safe it took 20 mins. (Didn't find any problems, just some usage tracks)
Drrag, yep I know, I did a little bit of research afterwards and found that, but what I thought was strange was that after quarantining in AVG, spybot didn't see anything that was unimmunized (i'm talking about the columns protected / unprotected).
still not loading sometimes, and (sorry i just remembered this now :P) sometimes the teatimer icon doesn't show in the systray, but it's functioning anyway...
Well, in safe mode there were no problems. Just opened in normal mode again without problems, downloaded some updates, so i'll run a scan in normal mode in a little bit, to find out how long it takes (even if it does have a few more detections).. - Chris
Could I see a startup list,if you are able to open Spybot okay next time?
Open Spybot,click mode,advanced mode,then Tools,System Startup,then click Export,then Save.
Go to View Report->View Previous Report->doubleclick SpybotSD.System startup report.txt,after it opens in Spybot rightclick,select Select All,rightclick again and select Copy,then paste it here.
Here you go Zen, while trying to get SB to work previously I was shutting down most things (including AVG because of some bad detections on their part..)
p.s. right-click? such a laborious way (CTRL+A | CTRL+C | ALT+TAB | CTRL+V )
Edit: Hmmm? Teatimer on LU? I'd prefer on LM.... any idea how to move it? [/lazy]
Not all users might want to use Teatimer,so the startup entry is put into HK_CU.Teatimer can just be activated on other user accounts by going to Tools->Resident,and checkmarking Teatimer.
Odd that you have a somewhat similar problem to lion1860's,and you both have Zone Alarm.
I know it seems unlikely for a firewall to cause problems with Spybot starting,but then again I've had weirder things happen to me before,so I try to take such things at face value.
Are you able to log off the Internet?If so,maybe you could just temporarily shut down Zone Alarm,and see if Spybot starts normally without problems then.
