    Default Sorrowfully, the end of a long relationship

    Can't remember how long I've used Spybot but it's at least 10 years and I've recommended it to a great many people. However, with this new version and its new interface, I'm done. No problems show up until the bitter end. Then when I click Fix, I can't tell if it fixed anything or not as nothing seems to happen. Having already done a complete scan once with the result that some problems could not be fixed, then another complete scan in Safe Mode, running as Administrator, I don't see why I should have to run it a third time to see if problems were fixed.

    Why would you change something that worked so well?

    Hello tempgal,

    Which version do you have and what is the operating system.

    Still available for older PCs: Spybot – Search & Destroy® 1.6.2 (free for private users)

    Best regards.

    I feel like I've found a friend who I thought was deceased.

    What I had, fleetingly, before I uninstalled it, was a version number beginning with 2. I had just downloaded it earlier today and updated it immediately after download, so it was probably the most recent.

    Operating System is Windows 7.
