    Default Splashscreen at Program Start

    Is there any way of turning off the Splashscreen ("Loading Spybot - Search & Destroy" progress bar) when you start Spybot ?

    I looked at the Settings under Program Start, but there doesn't appear to be any option to turn off the Splashscreen.

    The reason I ask is that I am using a Windows XP task schedule to start Spybot using the /minimized command line switch, but the Splashscreen gets in the way, so I would like to turn it off.

    There's no way to turn off the loading screen via settings.
    If you are open to not running it minimized,though,then there is /taskbarhide:
    That should run Spybot hidden.It needs to be used with /autoclose,as you can see in the link.
    Depending on how you want it set up,it could be something like:
    “C:\Program Files\Spybot – Search & Destroy\SpybotSD.exe” /taskbarhide /autocheck /autofix /autoclose or similar.
