I run 'spybot' and 'adaware' on our computer.
When i run 'adaware' i can see that it's checking all the drives and all of the user accounts.
When i run 'spybot' i can't see what it's actually checking. It seems to be only finding cookies and other spyware on my account. i've looked through but can't an option to check everything.
Does 'spybot' check everything by default or does it only check the account it's running on at the time?

Hi Starbuck

Open Spybot and go to Mode>Advanced and click that. Then go to Settings (on the left) and open that. Click directories and bring up the downloads directory window. Right click in this window and select Add a directory to this list. Pick the folders you want to include in the scan from here.
