After having tried Spybot S&D on a few computers, I have found 2 main problems that will stop me from using its teatimer function on an ongoing basis:
- Teatimer popups only show the top 3 or 4 pixels of the buttons. This can be fixed by using a program like resHacker, but its annoying to fix this bug on many computers.
- Teatimer locks up when it detects tracking cookies (and probably with other spyware as well), while working in conjunction with AntiVir.
The lockup is the most severe problem, and it doesn’t happen unless you stumble across a dodgy site… which makes it difficult to test.
Oh well, its back to using winpatrol, and only using spybot for the occasional manual scan.
