Pre- HJT Post Spybot question ...

Recommended Posts

Your Pre- HJT Post Instructions say to run Spybot S/D and remove all items found.

It does not say to run the scan in Default Mode, or Advanced mode.

Later in the instructions it talks about Spybot-Advanced Mode and Tea-Timer.

When I clicked to set Spybot-Advanced Mode, it shows a warning that some of the options for Advanced Mode can do harm to your computer. I assume that means that if running Spybot-Advanced Mode, you should not just blindly select and remove all items found.

So, I am running Spybot in Default mode. Please let me know if I should run it again in Advanced Mode.

Also please consider clarifying this in your instructions.

Thanks for your help.

Running the scan in default is fine. Advanced mode shows more information and adds some functions that if your not a knowledgeable user can cause problems. You must be in Advanced Mode to turn off TeaTimer. TeaTimer needs to be shut down for most of these scans to work properly because it protects against what the program needs to do to search for malware.
