I'm having a problem with spybot 1.6 immunizing firefox 3, for some reason. I don't have any spyware scanners running, just spybot and NOD32. It will not immunize firefox default(cookies) default(images) default(installations) default(popups) I'm stumped.

Did you previously have Firefox 2 installed on the PC, and if so did you completely uninstall it before you installed Firefox 3, and by that I mean manually remove any left over folders and files after the un-installation process.
If you look at the immunisation screen, in the Firefox group, are there two of each catagory. If there are, could you see whether a file named hostperm.1 is in your browser profile folder - if so try deleting it - it belonged to Firefox 2 - Firefox 3 uses a file called permissions.sqlite.
If this fixes the problem, post back and let us know, if not could you please provide some details about your operating system, CPU type, etc, and perhaps also some time frame details as to when Spybot 1.6 was installed relative to the installation of Firefox 3, and whether there was an earlier version of Spybot on the computer.
I have Vista/Firefox 3 and also could not immunize. Finally tried UNDO, and then could immunize. But after downloading updates from today (8/20/08) the problem reoccurred and I can't correct. Now what? Thanks, Gary
I am having the same problem. Firefox will not immunize. I am running FireFox 3.02 and Windows XP Pro. I did not have Firefox 2.0 installed before 3.0 so That is not the problem. I also did not have the bad prefs file. Any other ideas?
I also can't immunize Firefox 3 stuff...
I have uninstalled and reinstalled spybot but to no avail. i've also removed immunization and redone it.
there's a good chance i didn't uninstall firefox 2 before updating to 3, though....
