    Default spybot allow or deny

    I think this is the right place but if not sorry in advance.
    I keep getting the allow or deny from spybot for something called PromoteInstaller i found the file and I have no idea what it is so i have denied it so far I'm not sure if spybot is trying to delete it or if its going to let it make a change here is a small portion of the log it asks every second.

    PromoteInstaller was not allowed to be added to your System Startup because of the action to deny.

    To stop the alerts on PromoteInstaller next time the dialog pops up check the box to "Remember This Decision", hope that helps.

    Do you use Microsoft's Bing Bar?

    When you deny the startup and check the box to remember your decision it doesn't stick?

    Which version of Spybot do you have and what is the operating system?

    If you don't use Bing Bar often you could uninstall it and see if doing so removes PromoteInstaller.

    Okay I got the new version will it still block things that try to make changes and let me choose to allow or deny?
    I might try to get rid of bing if it comes back but I think it stopped so thank you so much for your help.

    Sounds like things are back to normal, if you'd like to compare versions in the future read here:
