    Beginning with the release of Spybot - Search and Destroy 1.4 there should be updates once a week. So normally the beta public update and the official update is out on fridays.

    Do you mean that the update will fix the damage done by "fixing" the false positive (which is what I hope), or that it will fix/prevent future detections of the false positive?

    Lightbulb Apparent Manual Fix

    Fernando suggests the following fix herethat seems to work for me so far:

    1 - create a text file (with notepad) with this text:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\TabBtnWL]

    2 - save it with any name you want and extension “reg”, like example.reg

    3 - double click the file, and respond yes to the question “are you sure to add…”

    4 - reboot and you should get everything functional
    Thanks to Mickey Segal for pointing this out to me.

    If anyone has insight on what the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon\Notify\Sebring Registry key does, please reply! I'm wondering what else Spybot may have damaged in trying to fix this false positive.

    Also, even though Spybot has caused a problem here, I still want to say that I appreciate their anti-spyware service, which all-in-all has been very helpful and generous.
