Spybot-S&D FAQs and Information
How can I get administrator rights under Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8?
On Windows Vista and Windows 7, Spybot-S&D might tell you that you are not authorized to perform some actions, since they require Administrator rights. You can solve this problem as follows:
- Right-click the Spybot - Search & Destroy entry in your start menu, instead of just left-clicking to start it.
- Choose Run as administrator from the context menu.
