    Default How/Where do I download SpyBot Professional?

    On the website I purchased SpyBot Professional and am having difficulty trying to find where to download this software.

    Somewhere it said to click on the "Start Center," which I do not see.

    Once I am on https://www.safer-networking.org, what do I click on to locate a download link?

    Thanks.

    Hello SanDiegoSunriser,

    Sorry to hear, did you receive a purchase receipt with a spybot.exe link and the license key?

    Please see "How to activate my new Spybot License."

    Hope that helps.

    I'm having the same problem and followed the above advice as the link in the email has expired.

    Downloaded free addition, followed the FAQ but there is no option to input the license.

    And I purchased after August 2018.

    Can you please supply a link to the professional addition??

    Regards.

    If you run the update and let it download all available updates first, the option to enter the license will appear. Might require a restart unless you close Start Center while updating. Simply click on the "Free Edition" in Start Center, and the opening license dialog will have the button to enter the license key.

    You can also use

    To retrieve your key if it has gone missing along with the license installer.

    Getting the updates should make the license box show up, so it's probably best to do that first, then check to see if Start Center will open after that.
    If you're on a Windows 10 PC, 64-bit, then the path to sdupdater will likely be C:\Program Files (x86)\Spybot - Search & Destroy 2. Rightclick SDUpdate.exe and run as administrator. Once the Update button appears up top, press update. Once the updates are downloaded, try rebooting your computer.

    Once logged back into windows, try opening Spybot Start Center again. If it won't open, post back here, and we'll go from there.
