    Default Very archaic mechanism for uncheckmarking selections.

    This is the screen that is displayed when a scan is finished: http://prntscr.com/4wvrgg . As can be seen, a button to uncheckmark all is nowhere to be found. From my 250 results, half are harmless stuff that I didn't want to delete, so I had to manually click on over 150 items. Why make it so hard for the user? It feels like this software was designed 30 years ago, where the user experience and ease of use were not priority.
    I am only posting this in the forums because nowhere in sight the Safer Networking website there is a form for suggestions, comments or complaints, so I can only assume they are to be posted here. Another user experience flaw...

    If you rightclick in the results windows,there are options to select all,unselect all,select all from product,unselect all from product.Also,an option to Ignore Product,and Jump to location.

    To cut down on the harmless things you'd rather not delete being found in future scans,if you prefer,you could disable scanning for Usage Tracks.To do that,open the Spybot start center,checkmark advanced mode,click Settings(saying yes to the uac prompt,if applicable.),open the categories tab,and somewhere in the Spybot window,rightclick and select Spyware Scan only.

    I couldn't find a form for suggestions,comments or complaints on the webpage either,so,yes,I'd assume posting here is good,also.

    There is a suggestions thread in the beta forum for suggestions for future versions of Spybot,located here:
