Help? Can Not run Spybot as administrator.
As of today, I no longer get the option to run the program as an admin.
I used to get that option when I right-clicked on the icon.
What d'ya think is up with that?
Many Thanks in Advance.
What's your Operating System?
If it's Vista, then:
Right-click on icon, select Properties, go to tab "Compatibility" and tick "Run this program as administrator". Try running spybot. If it doesn't work, then try right-click > "Run as Administrator". If fails, then un-tick "Run this program as administrator" and then try right-click > "Run as Administrator".
If it's XP, then: Right-click on icon, select Run As..., select "The following user", enter administrator's account name and password. Click run.
Edit: Do you have any found malware which Spybot found while scanning?

Thanks so much, Tom.
It's Vista & I followed your directions. So hopefully it will allow me to get rid of the malware when I run it again.
There were 2 entries found of the same thing. Now I can't remember what the name was...
Are those 2 entries fixed?

Try to post only Scan Log part which contains those 2 entries.
