    Post Drive selection

    I just recently installed spy bot and have used it to clean one of my drives
    however i'm wondering if it is possibly to select which drive you want to scan with the spyware
    or does it just do all the drive in one go?
    thanks for the help

    There are different ways to search for spies. One would be to search the complete registry and harddisk for suspicious entries and files. That can take a lot of time.

    Spybot-S&D takes advantage of the fact that all spies have to anchor themselves at a few places over the system to get active. It starts to search at these places, following the information gathered there to catch the whole spy.

    So it is not necessary to make your own scan on every drive. Spybot-S&D usually scans all internal harddisks automatically. But a general recommendation is that you store all incoming files (downloads) in a special folder, and that you set up this folder for a special installer scan. Please have a look at the "Directories" in the "Settings" when you run Spybot - Search & Destroy in "Advanced Mode". There you can add additional harddisks or folders.

    Best regards

    I have spybot installed on my bartspe disc. When running spybot from my disc, "directories" folder does not open and I cannot add additional harddisks or folders. What other options do i have to scan harddisk without spybot actually being installed on the harddisk?
