View Full Version : spybot hangs

2005-11-03, 15:20
I have spybot 1.4 installed w/ win xp pro. When I run scan the process hangs. The scan does not stop on the same file set, sometimes it will hang on say number 53 sometimes it might get up to 4000 or 5000 before hanging, but it never gets anyways near 30,000.

I have tried to reinstall SB S&D, tried to run in safe mode, tried to turn off the internet, tried to run only some of the file sets, nothing seems to help.:(

I have used spybot for some time, and never had a bit of problem with it?

Split off into own topic.

See if this helps.

If you are running on a system that has Hyperthreading Technology (HTT) please read the following thread:
Spybot will not complete a scan ?

The "set affinity" work-around described at


worked for me.

I too have a 3000 Mhz P4 w/HT running an 800 FSB on an Asus 800P4P-VM.
