    Default SPY-BOT suggests I ask this question on the forum

    Hi,https://forums.spybot.info/images/smilies/smile.png

    I've been using SPY-BOT v. 3.5.9 for about a year it's ready to be updated. Going thru the site I noticed SPY-BOT some new versions. v. 3.5.9 seems to have done decent job as I've had no intrusions or any funny things to happen.

    What would be a good direction to such as the std upgrade or the enhanced versions. I've been very busy with healthcare issues my wife & I have. We just moved to a new NJ location & it looks like a better direction for us. I the next few weeks I will have more time to study the forum more thoroughly.

    Regards,

    Hello. I hope things go well with the health care issues. I have health issues myself, and I know how time consuming these type of things can be.

    I just wanted to clarify if you meant Spybot Search and Destroy or Spybot Anti-Beacon, as an older Spybot Anti-Beacon does have the version number of 3.5.9, and Spybot Search And Destroy has the 2.8+ version numbers, currently.

    You're welcome. I hope you guys get great health, and break the Guiness World Record for longest living.

    Spybot Anti-Beacon and Spybot Search and Destroy are two different programs. Spybot Search and Destroy scans for malware, and the paid editions have an anti-virus included. There is a free version of Spybot Search and Destroy, and also Spybot Home editon, etc. which cost money. Which one is best for you depends on what you need for protection, etc. There is a comparison chart here, with prices.

    Note that the prices appear to be in Euros, and you'd need to convert them to your current currency to see the price:

    You can click on each feature listed on the side, and it will tell you more about each one. (Please note some paid editions of Spybot Search and Destroy do include Anti-Beacon Plus.)

    Spybot Anti-Beacon is a program that blocks and stops various telemetry (aka tracking) from Windows and other programs. It is for people who are concerned about privacy issues, etc. There's a page telling about anti-beacon here, and the price is listed on the side of the page as $9.99 usd:
