Re-install Spybot Search & Destroy

Here is how to re-install Spybot Search & Destroy:
  1. Download the installer for the latest version of Spybot S&D from here.
  2. Remove the Internet connection (unplug it, turn the modem off or the like).
  3. Remove Spybot S&D
    (Windows XP: Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs)
    (Windows Vista: Control Panel, Programs and Features).
  4. Restart the computer.
  5. Run the installer program you downloaded in step 1
    (Windows Vista only: Start the installer as Administrator and set the new Spybot desktop icon to start as Administrator).
  6. Re-establish the Internet connection.
  7. Let Spybot S&D update.
  8. Immunize.
  9. Scan for problems.
  10. If all works fine delete the downloaded installer file.
If you still see a problem after that please call me; I would like to see that via remote assistance. You can read here how that would work.

As usual I welcome comments and suggestions right here in the blog.

Thank you in advance.
