View Full Version : Bug associated with Spybot Search and Destroy

24-12-2003, 06:05 PM
I have experienced a strange problem with Spybot Search and Destroy.
After installing and running the program successfully, I noted a problem with the spell checker in MS Outlook express.
Specifically when I tried to check the spelling in a new e-mail I was advised that "Picture It" had to be reconfigured. And was advised to insert the appropriate CD however when I tried to do this , the program hung.
Only after uninstalling Spybot was I able to reconfigure Picture It and then bring my Spell checker back on line.
Does anyone heard of this bug before and is there a fix?
I would appreciate any help.

I would suggest you goto the Spybot S & D Forums.

Ive sumbitted two bugs for the up and coming SpyBot S & D 1.3 ;-)

Looks to be a good release :-)

Good, if not long over due: 1.2 has been around a bit too long.

Did you have the imunization features enabled?

It can interfere with ocx controls, like your spell checker.

Version 1.3 has got some real nice Tools. If you want to have a play download here (http://www.majorgeeks.com/download2471.html)

...Win XP Restore Points.

Keep in mind it _is_ still Beta.

Try this:
Go into Default Mode
Up the top is a little menu to select which mode you wish to be in, click Default Mode a few more times.. Notice anything different?

It's been fixed for the next rc (Beta 5) ;-)
