    Question Error Duringcheck!

    I get a reading that containes the above information followed by -
    WINPUP32 (Ungultiger Datentyp fur) after I run Spybot.
    The reading immediately after that says No Threats Found.

    So what does the other one mean??

    What version of Spybot are you running (Spybot > Help > About)?

    Please post the exact error message you are getting. Look in the Checks.yymmdd-hhmm.log file produced during the scan.

    Note: By default here are two Checks.yymmdd-hhmm logs produced during a scan. The second Checks.yymmdd-hhmm has the details of what the scan found. A Fixes.yymmdd-hhmm log is produced if you fix or attempt to fix something.

    Two methods to copy that information:
    • Method 1:
      • Go into Spybot > Mode > Advanced mode > Tools > View Reports > View Pervious reports. Look for the last Checks.yymmdd-hhmm or Fixes.yymmdd-hhmm from when you got the error message. Open it. To copy to the Clipboard > highlight the portion you want to copy (or Right click and select Select All) > Right click > Copy.
    • Method 2
      • The Checks.yymmdd-hhmm and Fixes.yymmdd-hhmm files are stored in the following folders:
        • Windows 95 or 98:
          C:\Windows\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs
        • Windows ME:
          C:\Windows\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs
        • Windows NT, 2000 or XP:
          C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs
      • Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the correct Checks.yymmdd-hhmm file. Double click on it and it should open with Notepad. To copy to the Clipboard > highlight the portion you want to copy (or Right click and select Select All) > Right click > Copy.

    That's gonna take me a bit. I'll play around with it and post the results tomorrow.

    I'm running Windows XP with Spybot 1.3.

    Maybe my McAfee is causing a problem with it? I just upgraded to Internet Security Suite 2006.

    We'll see......

    This is the report that was generated today.

    The error appears whenever I run Spybot.

    Is my McAfee Internet Secutiry Suite 2006 causing this somehow?

    Hi there.
    You are running Spybot-S&D version 1.3 and it was not updated after installation as the definitions are from 2004-05-12.

    Spybot-S&D 1.4 Final has been released.
    Uninstalling Previous Spybot-S&D

    Spybot-S&D Version 1.4 Download

    Tutorial

    Please make sure you update after installing.

    That will solve the Error problem you have received.

    Cheers.

    You know, I saw that when I looked in the files, but wasn't thinking to do the math.

    I'll get that done and hope the cure follows.

    Thanks for the help. Much appreciated!!
