Every now and then, instead of searching for thousands of items, Spybot only looks for 32 or so, and then shows green entries for the system's cache, log and such. What's the deal? I've reinstalled Spybot to get it back to normal, but this happens a lot. I have the latest version, and always update before I scan. Any thoughts? I'm tired of reinstalling it just to get it to work properly.
Try this...open Spybot,click mode up top,then advanced mode.Click Settings on the left,then file sets.Are there a lot of things unchecked underneath Spybot-Search and Destroy Integrated search for spybots?
If so,right click somewhere in the window.If you would like Spybot not to search for tracks anymore,select 'Spyware check only'.
You can return Spybot from advanced mode to normal by clicking mode up top,then default mode.
