a new update for spybot s/d although it is a beta.
Cool! Gotta keep up with the baddies BigC, thanks.
I can't find a log of the changes for this new beta. Maybe LWM will know if the is one, and maybe able to provide it.
But the thing I notived thats new ... (Opera user will be happy to know) ... this Spybot 1.4 beta now detects Opera cookies.
Anyone else notice anything new?
2 more little things I noticed.
When you run a scan ... You intially get a little note popup ... that says something to the effect of, "Please wait scanning in progress"
And under the info & license in advance mode there is now statistics option ... showing what has been removed from your system ... That I don't think was there before.
There has to be some changes with a two megabyte download.
Is the DOS false positive fixed?
I think it was fixed long ago already...
I notice that the IMMUNIZE function is not working properly, i guess its a beta bug.
When i click immunize, I get this error.
Think I will wait a while, download a non beta update. the 2 firewalls and virus scanner should keep me reasonably safe.
Note: no one say otherwise, I just ran spybot and ad-aware anf found nothing
do you run two active firewalls Jimbob?
I am running the 1.4 beta and whe I hit immunize I just get this
Have you used previous versions of the program, might have remembered what you imunized your pc against using an older version.
I have a firewall built into my router, then I have a software firewall on my pc.
For me the TeaTimer isn't working. It crashes and Windows wants to send an error report.
as of now my spybot 1.4 is working perfectly, absolutley no problems at all. Tea timer is working as well.
What did you do? BTW bigc, what were the three free AV's you were talking about in that other thread? About your computer shop....
Well this is just my experience but, of all of the computers that I have cleaned not a single one had a virus. It was all other form of crap. So an antivirus wouldn't have helped anyways. Sorry, I won't get off-topic any more than that.
I am glad with Spybot now, it is remarkeable faster, no false positives whatso ever, teatimer is using not so much resources. that is what I am experiencing with this update.
Is there anyone who are still getting the dso-exploit falsepossitive (i am) with the beta, i thought that this was corrected in the beta 1.4
Hi Don, yes, I am still get that bug...don't even look at it anymore...using the latest beta
Ok, thanks Infinity. I use the same "trick", i just wanted to know if it was some thing i should let them know about, but i'm sure they are well aware that they haven't fixed this.
well, i used the 1.3 then installed the 1.3.1 TX then just got the beta 1.4 thanks to bigc and it works without a hitch. immunize comes up with already known stuff immunized like it should. i ran the scan. definately faster. and more details at end. found nothing wrong. i think if youd installed the 1.3.1 TX version overtop of 1.3 first then installed the beta over that, you wouldnt have any dso's. i dont have them since installing the TX. but the beta seems to be working just fine overtop both of the others.
