    Thank you......that's just the way I am, too Whenever there is an option, I like to do a clean install. However, I was not sure if the Hallowe'en Beta was a complete version or just a fix for the existing 1.5.1.15.

    Thanks for bringing my question back to the forefront. I was still wondering whether I needed to uninstall the original version with the .16 patch or not.

    Most welcome. My indecision is based on the fact that unless the Hallowe'en Beta .17 is just the installer, the file is only 8.42 MB and not large enough to be a full version.

    I installed it and I still have all the normal features? Maybe they managed to cut the file size down a little?

    "only" 8.42 MB ... wow, that made my day
    Sorry, not joking actually... file size is quite important to us (me at least)!


    Anyway, it's larger than the public 1.5, so I don't think there's anything to worry The installer version always is the "full" thing (minus the updates that are downloaded separate); creating additional installer versions is a lot of work that I usually wouldn't do

    The orginal spybotsd15.exe installer was 7.12 MB (7,467,056 bytes). The spybotsd15he-beta1.exe installer is actually larger at 8.42 MB (8,830,056 bytes).

    Getting an answer is one thing, learning is another.

    Oh, md usa spybot fan ist right of course!
    Guess that's the newer help files (more pictures) and some other updated databases.

    Not sure where your (michhalas) idea of it not being large enough comes from?

    Add/Remove shows Spybot Search & Destroy as 20.15 MB. How weird is that!

    I have always removed all traces from the registry and otherwise for each new version.

    Default O.K. I am having a Blonde Moment!

    Apologies......I should have checked the setup for 1.5.1.15 on my setup backup disk which was 7.12 MB -- I would have seen that was closer to the Hallowe'en Beta .17's 8.42 MB.

    But why 20MB on Add/Remove? Everything was removed when I upgraded to 1.5.1.15.
