Spybot Search and Destroy 2.4

Publisher Description

Search and Destroy 2.4 Spybot-S&D searches your hard disk for so-called spy- or adbots; little modules that are responsible for the ads many programs show. But many of these modules also transmit information about your surfing behaviour and more to the net. If Spybot-S&D finds such modules, it can remove them - or replace them with empty dummies in case their host won't work any more with its bot removed. This is version 2.4.

Latest Changes

The release of Spybot 2.4 is now available.
Spybot 2.4 fixes some bugs in Spybot's Updater:
* problems when bdcore.dll is updated (only Spybot +AV editions)
* for antivirus updates the proxy settings were ignored (only Spybot +AV editions)
* we rephrased the message that is printed when no new updates are available to be more user-friendly
* for users of the Polish translation of Spybot, updating was broken

If you are experiencing problems updating signatures you should install this version. All other users may skip this release.
Improvements in Spybot 2.3: "In response to the latest techniques used by malware developers we have added new enhanced detection methods. This means better protection against the new wave of spyware, rootkits and viruses.
Scanning and cleaning is now much faster. We have tweaked our scanning engine so it now scans faster and some cleaning tasks are now fully automated.
We have also made certain features of Spybot easier to access from the user interface at the request of our customers, many of whom gave us very useful feedback. There have also been many other functional improvements and enhancements.
For example:
- Improved Startup Tools. These powerful tools now work with even the latest Windows Operating Systems.
- SDScan now runs automatically with escalated privileges. This means no more annoying restarts and no need to run SDCleaner.
Furthermore we have added an exciting new Notifications feature:
Spybot can now be configured to send the results of scans on your PC to your mobile device, server, chat or website. You no longer have to wait around while Spybot is doing a scan. As soon as your scan finishes a message will be sent to your chosen device and you will be informed of possible threats. This means you can react and make decisions on what action to take much faster."

ComputerFixerTools.com Review

Spybot Search and Destroy has been an important player in the fight against spyware for a long time. This newest version improves scan speeds, and continues on the path they have been setting for years. Spybot does not charge individuals for the use of their program. When this program ends up saving your computer, be generous and donate to them. This update puts Spybot back out in front as the best program to use to fix your computer up. Commercial version is available from Safer Networking Ltd.
