I've noticed that since about the beginning of the month, I get an error message whenever I close Spybot after a successful scan. It alerts me of a "Runtime Error 216," which my Google searches tell me is linked to a backdoor Trojan called SubSeven.
However, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, Avast Anti-Virus, and Spybot itself do not detect anything, and other than that one error message, I've had no problems, hiccups, or abnormalities with my computer. Whatever it's worth, I use those three programs, plus the default Windows firewall, for my security.
The above is a link to a thread on the Spybot forums, where users surmise the error is tied to a Spybot update from a few weeks ago. This is consistent with my situation, since I first got the error after running a scan following an update in late July/early August. Many, but not all, of the users there say they only get the error if they scan while Firefox is open, and this seems to be my situation, too.
Is this truly an infection? A glitch? A known problem of any kind, really? Is there any known way to check, or to fix it?
