    Default Persistent Spybot Desktop notification Windows 10 Chrome

    Newbie question.

    Spybot desktop notification (covers 2/3 of screen) pops up at various times (random, startup, after waking up from standby). I can close it easy enough. However it is persistent and getting to be a nuisance. How to turn it off. I went to Chrome Security Notifications and did not see Spybot.

    Does Spybot have a way to turn this off?

    Don't mind Spybot relevant and new notifications or reminders, but this popup is static. Same thing over and over.

    Thank You.

    Hello.
    Would that notification happen to be a Spybot Lab notification, or an Update News notification?Like the picture here, or similar?

    Thank you. That is it. I am reading through thread now... got to the first fix of renaming a file, but the thread goes on for many pages. S&D is great, but software designed to remove malware and viruses acting like a virus (a naissance) is not great. Thanks again.

    You're welcome.

    They released a newer installer that should get the spybot lab to only show once,, if you'd like to uninstall and reinstall. Please see m/f's comment here:
