    The normal uninstall of Spybot-S&D 1.3 does not remove the recovery files that were produced by a previous version of Spybot. See:

    Download sites for Spybot-S&D 1.4:
    Uninstall Spybot-S&D 1.3:
    • Go into Spybot > Immunize
      • Click "Undo" button (at the top)
      • Uncheck (if checked) the following:
        "Enable permanent blocking of bad addresses in Internet Explorer"
    • Go into Spybot > Mode > Advanced Mode > Tools > Resident
      • Uncheck (if checked) the following:
        Resident "TeaTimer" (Protection of over-all system settings) Active.
    • Go into Spybot > Mode > Advanced Mode > Tools > IE Tweaks.
      • Uncheck (if checked) any of the following "Miscellaneous locks":
        • Lock Hosts file read-only as protection against hijackers
        • Lock IE start page setting against user changes (current user)
        • Lock IE control panel against opening from within IE (current user)
    • Go into Spybot > Mode > Advanced Mode > Tools > Hosts file
      • Click the "Remove Spybot S&D hosts list" button (at the top)
    • Exit Spybot-S&D
    • Make sure that TeaTimer is not running by checking for the TeaTimer System Tray Icon. If the icon is there:
      • Right click Spybot's TeaTimer System Tray Icon > click Exit Spybot-S&D Resident. TeaTimer should close.
    • Go to Windows > Control panel > Add or Remove Programs > Locate "Spybot – Search & Destroy 1.3" > Remove.
    • Using Windows explorer, verified that the following folder has been delete. If not, delete it:
      • C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy
    • Optional - If you want to make sure that all the registry entries that Spybot-S&D added during installation are removed, there is a .reg file available on the safer-networking.org WEB site that can do that. See the following article:
    • Optional - Delete the Configuration.ini file
      • The Configuration.ini file is stored in one of the following folders:
        • Windows 95 or 98:
          C:\Windows\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy
        • Windows ME:
          C:\Windows\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy
        • Windows NT, 2000 or XP:
          C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy
    Installing Spybot-S&D 1.4:
    • Execute spybotsd14.exe download above.
    • Do not change the default installation path of:
      • C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy

    Not necessary. As indicated in the following reference:

    Also, neither the automated uninstall nor the manual uninstall like described above will remove the following directories, which you will have to remove by hand:
    • Windows 95 or 98: C:\Windows\Aplication Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\
    • Windows ME: C:\Windows\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\
    • Windows NT, 2000 or XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\
    Don't delete it and it will remain intact so there is no need to copy, etc.

    The currect mirrors (BN FileForum, PlanetMirror, XTeq, and Freenet (German)) are mirrors (duplicates) of one another. In other words, each one will download the same installation file (spybotsd14.exe). It does not matter which one you use.

    I downloaded spybotsd14.exe over a year ago (2005-06-01) and I do not remember.

    Spybot is an anti-spyware product and specializes in detecting Dialers, Hijackers, Keyloggers, Tojans, Tracking Cookies and other Malware. It is not an anti-virus product, which primarily detect viruses and worms.

    md usa spybot fan has stated Spybot clearly.

    try not to confuse anti-spyware software with anti-virus software, Tom.K. antivirus programs and anti-spyware programs work differently and detect different stuff.

    but it's good to have both antivirus & antispyware software installed for best protection
