    Default Windows 10 won't allow SBS&D to work?

    Just got an offer in my Systray for a free copy of Windows 10 when it comes out. While checking all of the info available in the various drop-down menu's there, I got this screenshot and I was wondering what was up with that. Haven't seen it mentioned here in a quick scan of the forums. Not really interested in a "free" copy of Windows 10 if I have to give up using SpyBot - and makes me seriously wonder WHY it wouldn't work with the new version of Windows (I don't trust M$ a lot to start with).

    I got a good to go message on my report. Not sure why. Do you have the Spybot 1.6.2 version? I have 2.4. That's about the only thing I can think of.

    Nope, I have the same version of Spybot that you do. Perhaps picking up on a leftover registry-entry from the previous version?

    I can reproduce this... by right-clicking the Win10 icon, choosing "Check your upgrade status", opening the menu, and selecting "Check your PC".

    Testing what exactly causes this... and which incompatibility they claim...

    Update 1: a paid-for Spybot installation will remain after installing build 10130. Tested paid first because with Live Protection, it would the most likely candidate for incompatibilities. Will test free Spybot next.

    Update 2: again Win 7 Ultimate, fresh installation, this time with the free Edition of Spybot. Upgrade to Windows 10 build 10130, Spybot is still there.

    Still, we don't know whether Microsoft has already implemented that "uninstall and reinstall or ignore" mechanis in build 10130...

    Mine is still showing your PC is ready,and the you're good to go message.I have no idea why,but I'm glad my Spybot learned how to run in stealth mode somehow.

    Hi, I downloaded & installed the new (paid) subscription Spybot 2.4 on Sunday 6th June & on Monday 7th June Windows did a computer check for Windows 10 free subscription on my windows 7 OS computer & I got the same result as M3gaW0lf did... I didn't bother you with the screen grab but it was exactly the same...

    What now Sherlocks???

    Worst thing that could probably happen is that after a Windows 10 upgrade, you would have to reinstall Spybot (just run the license installer you got by email).

    So far, an upgrade wouldn't even remove Spybot...

    But we're working hard on finding out what we can do to get from the list and find out what MS will do in the final release of Windows 10, and if possible, bring out a patch through the Spybot Update before Windows 10 gets released

    speaking of Windows 10, it will be released online to those using genuine versions of Windows 7 SP1 & Windows 8.1 on July 29.

    Since an update of my computer with OS windows 10, I don't see any change when updating Spybot signatures.
    I was 140.000 signatures and I am still 140.000 signatures today....
    I suggest The programers to check this problem quickly otherwise this program will be not working at all
