New Release: Spybot Search & Destroy V1.4

Recommended Posts

From Net-Intergration:

Here are some of the new features it offers:

First native multi-installation scanner

On PE boot CDs as well as on any system with multiple installations of Windows 2000 or later, Spybot-S&D 1.4 is able to scan the other installations as well, including the registry. From what we know, Spybot-S&D is the first anti-spyware solution that offers inactive registry scanning as a native feature.

Speed boost-ups

Spybot-S&D 1.4 should work noticably faster than 1.3 during scans. And if you still don't like to wait, you can play our easter egg while scanning.

Improved tools

We've improved the Tools section that Spybot-S&D offers in advanced mode - the process list now offers a list of open network connection per application (Windows 2000 or newer only), helping you to quickly identify which applications are local and which do use connections to the outside. Our detection mechanisms have also been updated, from detecting and cleaning services over protocol filters to the afore-mentioned scanning in inactive installations registries.

Graphics remake, and more

We've replaced the old home made icons with a bunch of great graphics provided by the guys at Yellow Icon Studio to make the user interface look smoother. But while this is highly visible on the surface, there have been more than 104 important changes underneath.




More news to follow.

Just downloaded and installed Spybot S&D 1.4

Same happy smooth experience as we've become accustomed to with Spybot.

There's a "ton" of updates already. It took a while even with my DSL connection.

Don't forget to update regularly.


Thanks, and Best Regards

Installation method, recommended by Donna at Calendar of Updates:1. Undo immunization

2. If SDHelper and TeaTimer are enabled, deactivate them first.

3. If Opera Browser is installed, de-select "Opera Immunity" protection.

4. Uninstall old version of Spybot S&D

5. Reboot


5a. Optional step: If you want to completely remove the all and old registry entries of the old version of Spybot S&D, get the registry file from the forum or get it directly from the website. Save it to your desktop where you can find it easily. Simply merge the reg file to the registry.


6. Install Spybot S&D 1.4

Followed the recommended steps for uninstalling old, installed 1.4, updated, for some strange reason the Ignore Products wouldn't show up. Rebooted and all was well... :)


This was a long time coming, I wanted to wait for the official release. It's finally here... ;) -kd5-

Do check all your "exclusions" to insure that everything IS unchecked. In addition to the three items mentioned by Donna, above, I found "Cdilla", both PUP and revision. No big security risk, but I don't use TurboTax, anyway1

Found this posted over at COU by roddy32.


It seems there is an issue with regards to SpywareBlaster after following the install instructions as listed above. Some have found, most all, that several items in the 'restricted zone' protection have remained unticked. With me it ws only 4, and others more. But its an issue, so I wanted to alert everyone.

And a thread from C|NET forums

I just checked and I had 12 items with protection disabled in SpywareBlaster. I too followed the recommendation of removing Spybot 1.3's Immunization prior to uninstalling, then Immunizing once again with 1.4. I've re-enabled SpywareBlaster's protection, I assume that was just a one time deal but we'll see.


Thanks TeMerc... ;) -kd5-

HI all. I'm running windows 98SE I also had 12 stinkers unprotected. I fortunately noticed it about 12 hrs after I updated both programs, but it was a one time occurrence, so I thought nothing of it. The problem I've been having is spybot must be re immunized constantly because of 3 things keep getting un immunized
