    Default Usability/Wording out of date in RC2

    Usability - there are lots of windows that don't have <Close> or <OK> buttons but rely on the user clicking <X> in the top right corner to close them. An example is:



    I'd prefer to see <Close> or <OK> buttons.



    Wording - the wording in the immunisation warning



    needs updating to include Windows 7 and 8.

    A few more issues.

    1. After doing a scan, clicking on a detected item and then clicking the "Show details" link (see bottom of image):



    tries to open a web page that doesn't exist.


    2. After doing a scan, the wording for the <Fix Found> button could be improved to "Fix Problems" or something similar:




    3. After clicking on the <Fix Found> button I got:



    None of the buttons here are obvious if you do want to
    • fix the problems as administrator (though clicking <Retry> seems to work).
    • just fix the problems that a standard user can fix (presumably this is what <Cancel> does).


    The wording for the buttons should be improved.


    4. After clicking on <Retry> in point 3 and entering my administrator password I was taken to a scanning window. It wasn't obvious that I had to run the scan again as administrator to fix the problems that I had found in the previous scan.

    The scan and fix should run automatically.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your feedback regarding the Spybot-S&D 2.0 RC2.

    That was meant by "Vista or above".

    Do you have the link for the non-existing page?

    We also find usage tracks and similar. So the items that are being found are not always problems, therefore we have choosen the term "Fix above".

    Best regards

    The first paragraph says "... or Vista's User Account Control security feature." There is no mention of "or above".

    No. The link seemed to be corrupted in some way as it didn't appear correctly in the browser.

    Given that the user can choose which problems to fix, "Fix selected" would make more sense.
