    Default SpyBot not running on windows 10 Pro


    I have Spybot, set as a scheduled job, 9am every Friday, to run the actions as below in this order. I'm using Spybot search and destroy and start center

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Spybot - Search & Destroy 2\SDUpdate.exe" /autoupdate /silent
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Spybot - Search & Destroy 2\SDImmunize.exe" /scan /immunize /autoclose
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Spybot - Search & Destroy 2" /scan /autoclean /autoclose
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Spybot - Search & Destroy 2\SDOnAccess.exe" /scan /autoclean /autoclose

    I have been running spy bot as a scheduled service for years on windows 7, then 8 then issues. When I upgraded to windows 10, the scheduled process runs, but it is not doing the update or scan. I did the spybot for windows 10 upgrade.

    SDUpdate.exe starts but I have to manually click "update" button now. (I noticed this when temporarly turning off "silent". The autoupdate seems to not be working, it did work in Win 7 and 8 and 8.1). Its not possible to hit the update in silent mode, therefore the first step does not complete)

    SDScan.exe is not auto cleaning. It scans, then comes up and I have to manually click the "Fix" button. I think the autoclean option is not working.

    Please let me know what could be causing this and the solution.
    thanks James

    Question Can't get task scheduler to work for Spybot in Window 10

    Hi, I was able to set up an auto-start task for Spybot S&D update on my Windows 7 system, but it is not working on Windows 10. I get the "Operational Code (2)", and I can't figure out why. I've tried everything I could find suggested in the forums, but I'm obviously missing something. I'm on version, and I can start and run it manually. Was there a bug that was fixed? Do I need to specify a "Start in" directory? My Task Scheduler action is: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Spybot - Search & Destroy 2\SDUpdate.exe" with the /autoupdate in the "add parameters" field. I've checked the directory and it is correct. I originally had /silent /background /autoclose in the add parameters field, removed them but it doesn't make a difference.

    Thanks for any advice on this,

    I think that error code might be file not found:;Last_Result'

    Try clicking the task, then under the General tab, checkmark Run with Highest Privileges, and click OK. See if that helps.
