    When I "check problems" on Spybot I get this message and I can't proceed:

    ! error during check
    Xabot (Ungultiger Datentyp fur")


    Can any one help me with this?

    I always found Spybot SD a bit buggy. You would not believe the amount of registry entries it makes on install, and the amount it leaves behind upon uninstall.

    While I have not run across any bugs, I agree with the registry entries remark. I still use it, though. When I have uninstalled, I just used a reg cleaner to help in this regard.

    Yes, running a reg cleaner will remove some of the files left behind, but if you use regedit's find function you will see many more registry entries left behind that don't exist in the typical HKEY/Current/Local/Programs.
