    I just upgraded my 4.0 beta today, and got the following "problem" when I ran a Spybot Search & Destroy scan:

    Central24:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ewidoantispyware4

    I'm not worried about it, and I'm not even sure you guys would be (it's probably up to the Spybot team to sort out).

    Nice to have the automatic schedule working at last, btw! :)

    The Key was created when ewido 4 was installed.

    This is completely normal, but for some reason Spybot is finding a problem with it.

    Spybot will need to fix the false positive in due course; until then ignore it.

    I reported to the Spybot forum and the Spybot team is working on it. In the meanwhile, just relax.
