    Default Uninstalled SS&D and Antibeacon because of nuisance popup

    Okay, I get it, you changed the blacklist / whitelist thing, well done, good for you. But I don't need to have a popup telling me how virtuous and pc you are several times a day! I created an account here so I could have a grumble about it, but now I see people have been complaining about it for a year at least and nothing has been done about it, so I've uninstalled both apps because you don't seem to have any intention of removing it.
    I may reinstall them again in the future if and when when this nuisance is removed, both apps are very good but this pop up is malware, exactly the kind of thing security software is supposed to prevent.

    +1 well said. I'd add did ANYONE think "black list" was a race thing, a reference to or disparaging of people with African heritage? No.

    People (authoritarian) insist on telling us what to say (on threat of persecution, being canceled). People that draw attention to race are dividing us for power not righteousness. Tell them no. People who cave to their threats I pray find courage to standup for common sense and sanity and true freedom of thought and speech.

    Default Same problem here

    I am also a new forum member who joined just because of these nuisance news popups. Not sure what everyone else is seeing but I get pop ups almost every hour from the SSD application.

    Is this really not going to be fixed? Or is un-installation the only solution?

    Which version of Spybot do you have? If you open Spybot start center, then click File, then About start center...., it will show the version of spybot also. Can you post the version listed here, please?

    On point, thanks Zenobia!

    I was informed that Users who have version 2.8.69.138 still installed will see the Spybot lab pop up continuously and so need to reinstall Spybot and upgrade to 2.8.69.139
