need help with Spybot Search and Destroy

Postby yourstruly » Wed Oct 06, 2010 8:09 pm

anyone else use this? I'm trying to remove a few problems, but spybot just tells me i can't do it as i'm "not an adminstrator" which isn't true. Kinda concerned as 2 of the things i can't remove are labelled as trojans. not really sure what i need to do. any help would be much appreciated. 8)

That worked for me when I had the same problem. Make sure you open the source folder and do that from there not the shortcut.

Awesome, that worked fine. Thanks heaps, appreciate. I assumed it ran as an administrator by default.

Yeh same here especially seeing as my account is an administrator one. You can do most things except fuck with system files.
