    Smile Immunize not working on larest Spybot S&D using Vista

    Need help! Running latest Spybot S&D on both desktop (VistaHome Premium) and Laptop (Also Vista Home Premium). Firefox will immunize on desktop, but not on Laptop. Why? Do I need to change a setting or something. Have uninstalled and re-installed several times, same results. Help!

    In Vista you must elevate the administrator rights in order run certain things within Spybot-S&D.

    There are several ways to do that:
    • Elevate the administrative rights for a single running:
      • Instead of double clicking (left clicking) to start Spybot, right-click and select "Run as administrator" from the context menu.
    • Permanently elevate.
      • If you are running Spybot from a desktop shortcut for example, right click on the desktop shortcut and select Properties.
      • Then go into Application Compatibility and select "Run As administrator".
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    And to expand on to Terminator's post:
    Some users have reported this method to resolve the problem:
    You'll have to run Spybot-Search&Destroy with Administer rights (post#1) and click on the Immunize tab. Then click on the Immunize button (Green Cross). That should do the job.
