    SpyBot - Search & Destroy 1.4 RC2


    SpyBot-S&D searches your harddisk 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. In most cases, the host software still runs after removing the bot.

    For a list of `supported` bots see the feature lists below. Spybot-S&D works with an easy interface that allows updates by just replacing a file of about 1k size.

    Another feature of Spybot S&D is the removal of usage tracks, which makes it more complicated for unknown spybots to transmit useful data.

    This is just release candidate two of 1.4 which means it is still beta and not an update of Spybot that people need yet.

    Version 1.3 is still the last stable one and in fact the 1.4 is not even on the official download page.

    This is a good programme anyway, used it for a few years now. Will wait for the new version which I was not aware was in beta. Thanks Lee will keep my eye on this one.

    There is a bug in this for some machines. It don't find framedyn.dll, in order for it to work you have to search for it and copy it to the spybot program file folder. Other than that, it works great ..
