    Default ‘Include errors.log’

    I'm running Spybot-Search & Destroy version With the latest updates.
    Recently a dialogue box has appeared -
    "There were problems in the include file C:\Program Files\Spybot-Search_Destroy\Includes\
    See ‘Include errors.log’ for details."

    What can I do other than clicking 'OK'?
    I have not found ‘Include errors.log’

    If you are not running Spybot, upgrading to Spybot 1.5.2 will solve the problem (Mirror selection - The home of Spybot-S&D!).

    The current errors with the and files that started with the 2008-04-09 updates are caused by new detection rules that are incompatible with versions of Spybot prior to 1.5.2. These new detection rules use the new Anti-Rootkit plugins #1, #2 and #3 that only have been offered as updates to Spybot 1.5.2. If you upgrade to Spybot 1.5.2 you will not only eliminate the error messages but in also will be performing rootkit searches while doing a Spybot "Check for problems".

    If there is a reason that you cannot upgrade to Spybot 1.5.2, you can try the Anti-Rootkit plugins #1, #2 and #3 with Spybot 1.4, but they are not officially supported. From post #11 in the following thread:

    Note: "... but not with official support ".

    The downloads for the Anti-Rootkit plugins are on the following Web page:

    This item:
    • Anti rootkit plugins 1.0 - product description
      md5: EE7278BC89D4557CFD7127EACC37EE70

      Supported only for version 1.5.2 or above!
      This adds improved capabilities to find rootkits. Only needed if you do not want to use the update function integrated into Spybot-S&D.

    Please note: Supported only for version 1.5.2 or above!

    The direct download link is:
