    It comes with Spybot S&D version 1.3, enabled at default. To disable the resident (which I wouldnt advise you to) open Spybot>click tools>click Resident>and disable the two checked options.

    *Note* You'll have to be in advanced mode to do this*Note*

    Yeah Cochise, not to worry. Have a look at this page. Also found some info on this at Safer-Networking, home of SpyBot.
    Another look, CastleCops.
