    Default Spybot Free - EventID 2 and EventID 15

    I am running Windows 10 Professional 64-bit 21H1. In my application EventLog I see every six minutes two entries:
    EventID 2 : Spybot The system cannot find the file specified.
    EventID 15: Security Center Updated Spybot - Search and Destroy status successfully to SECURITY_PRODUCT_STATE_ON.

    The EventID 2 has no information as to what file cannot be found. The "Details" tab has:

    + System
    - EventData

    It appears that the EventID 15 is not a "file not found" condition; it is "Spybot state changed to ON" condition. What do these EventLog entries signify? And why is the Spybot status being changed to ON every six minutes, as assume that it is always ON, and there are no EventLog records that it had been turned off? Thanks.

    I did find a thread with Event ID 15 on the forum which had a test update that fixed it, but that was from 2016, so probably best not to apply that now, might be a different issue.
    It's probably best if you contact Team Spybot:
