    Default Spybot 1.6 up

    I installed spybot 1.5,1.6 on a PC ages ago. I had run other malware removers like Trojan Killer, Lavasoft Adware 2007, and others, and found no spyware.

    When I ran Spybot 1.5 or 6,after I updated it, I always found tons of spyware on there after scanning with spybot. A lot through having Windows Media player preinstalled.When I had and installed the updates off of a free CD from a magazine bought at a bookstore,I had no spyware problems, but always got reports that there was some errors in the update files.

    Are these false positives,or are the updates simply prepacked with infections?

    As these versions of Spybot are outdated I would strongly recommend to upgrade to Spybot 2.

    Best regards
