    Default Wrong date for last system scan

    I made a system scan in the last two days and yet Spybot claims the last one was at the start of July.

    EDIT: Does it only update the date if you fix at least one of the found problems?

    No,I tried a scan without fixing anything and it showed that a scan was done today.
    You mean the box at the top of the system scan window,right?
    Which version of Spybot do you have?

    The box at the top of the system scan window says "38 days". Version 2.3.

    Could it be that it doesn't count scans "with different options"?

    I tried a scan with different options and no fixing,and it still shows the correct date/time scanned.
    I do have Spybot 2.4,which may be the difference.I know that there were some troubles with the Last Update button in the 2.3 version,please see Number Two here:

    Perhaps there was a problem with the Last Scan button under System Scan in Spybot 2.3,and nobody noticed.

    You could either go up to Spybot 2.4 and see if it is fixed for you,or since the button is reporting the wrong scan time,you could choose just to ignore it,whichever you prefer.

    If you decide to go with going up to Spybot 2.4,your best option is to download the Free Edition.When it is installing,you should be prompted if you would like to get a newer license,or keep the one you have.I went with keeping the older license when I upgraded mine.
