    Question Spybot No Longer Fixes Threats

    I have been using spybot s&d for months, yet recently when i do a system scan and find threats, they do not remove properly. i make sure all are selected and click 'Fix Selected' it shows a tick next to all to all removed threats and off i go. I repeated this process multiple times and found the same issues, over and over. I looked into my logs and saw that all of the threats were (Registry Key, nothing done). Any ideas? Do I need to run Spybot as an admin?

    I agree. I have had this problem and I wonder why. If it was an admin permission issue the computer would notify you.

    Yes. How can I get administrator rights under Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8?

    After a few more attempts, system is clear, admins - close the topic
