    Default Spybot 1.5 Final

    Hello all,

    Just curious if there was some guideline as to roughly when the 1.5 final version will be available.

    And also can someone please confirm that support and updates will continue for Windows 98 S.E

    Many thanks

    I think we've already answered your questions in the other threads you made your comments, poppylove.

    spybot 1.5 will work under win95/98/me; it hasn't abandoned win9x support

    On the news article:


    Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5 will be released as soon as Microsoft has certified it, which sadly took more time than expected, since the standard requirements were not really fit for anti-malware software.
    I expect it will come out soon now.

    Something tells me that poppylove is just afraid things are going to change and no one is going to send him a personal email letting him know that there was a change he was not expecting.

    Hello Rosenfeld.

    Under these circumstances, version 1.5 will only receive the "Works with Windows Vista" logo, but at least there's nothing left blocking the release, which will take place as a beta version this week.

    I have downloaded SSD 1.5 beta from http://www.filehippo.com/download_sp...earch_destroy/, but I can find very little info on it here, or anywhere else.

    Question: do I need to uninstall 1.4 before installing the 1.5 beta?

    As I am sometimes a bit impatient, I went ahead and installed the 1.5 beta over the existing 1.4 installation. This seemed to work fine, but I ended up with 2 uninstallers in Add/Remove Programs. So I uninstalled both 1.5 and 1.4, rebooted, then installed the 1.5 beta again. Now I seem to have a clean situation.

    Answer: I think it is better to uninstall any previous version of Spybot S&D before installing the 1.5 beta.
