    'Spybot' fails to recognize updates

    I update Spybot - Search & Destroy 2.3.39.130 daily, but somehow Spybot isn't entirely getting the word: It keeps insisting my signatures haven't been updated in more than eight days. This is a...

    Good-bye for now, Zenobia and Fred!

    Good news, Zenobia: I received an electronic-mail message from the Support people, acknowledging my appeal for help. We shall see what miracles await, I hope!

    'All Quiet on the Western Front'

    Zenobia, I reset that "Services Pipe Timeout" function to 180000 as you suggested; but you're right: It didn't seem to help, insofar as there's still no sign of "Security Center Service" in the...

    Thanks a bunch, Zenobia, for your crystal-clear instructions! I backed up the registry, for the first time ever. I bookmarked your latest message and that About.com page you linked. It turned out...

    Yes and no....

    Yes, Zenobia, I'm comfortable with editing the registry. No, the Security Center Service doesn't appear in Asuka's Spybot "Settings" window; and I'm wondering why it doesn't.

    Anyway,...
