    Default Spybot 1.5.1.18 Beta 2

    Spybot Search & Destroy 1.5.1.18 Beta 2

    Just found this at ScanWith.com

    Its nice and tight and I think the Schredder worked when it cleaned tracks too!

    Looking good so far

    Well, I been waiting, but, I didnt guess the url!

    during the install, there are two options for shredder. What the differance? I choose other isntalled shredder (i forget the words used on installer), does this mean its now using my "Eraser" that I have installed? Which ever is being used, it does shred during the cleaning process. So its cool!

    @wk357mag: no, there are no two options about the shredder The two things you probably mean are these?
    1. Separate Secure Shredder application
    2. Spybot-S&&D File Eraser
    First one is indeed the shredder, as a stand-alone application. The second one is the Explorer context menu entry for SDDelFile.exe, which is not for shredding, but for removing persistent files (contrary to standard "del filename", this terminates processes, closes associated file handles, etc. ... almost everything usually required to remove stubborn malware files that cannot be removed by simply moving them to the trash can... ok, usually Spybot-S&D should detect and allow you to remove these from its interface, but I thought it would be nice to have it separate as well for those who want it. Might be a bit too much to display it in the installer though).

    the "helloween" version works.

    Hmmm beta 1 still in the installer, right, will fix that

    Refuses to install?
    Do you mean the setup doesn't even start, or what kind of refusal exactly?
    From what I just compared with the beta 1 installer, there should be no difference in requirements of the installer (I used a new version of the installer again, but it doesn't use any system calls that are not 95 compatible).
