View Full Version : Spybot closes after I click "Check For Problems"??

2009-10-03, 02:59
Hi all, I just registered because I'm having a problem with S&D and I wanted to see if anyone could help me. When I opened Spybot, I got a popup saying I needed to get updates, so I did. But then, when I clicked "Check For Problems", it looked like it was about to start working, but then it just closed. Now, when I try to open the program, I get a popup that says "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. YOu may not have the appropriate permission to access the item."

I've never had this problem before until today. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling, but that did not seem to work. Please help!!
