Hi all,

Im having problems with my Search & Destroy program. Scanning runs Ok, but when i click on the Fix Selected problem button, it just hangs. I uninstalled and re-installed the program several times but no change.

Any suggestions.

Hi mr chris :thumbsup:

I have two possible solutions for you:

:flowers: You could try disabling or closing as many programs as you can when running the scan. Look at the bottom left of your screen on the list of programs running. Right click and exit as many as you can that are unneccessary, (leave things like your modem etc..). Some programs may be running that are interfering with spybot's actions

:trumpet: You could try to run spybot S+D in safe mode, as you will probably get best results there. To get into safe mode press the F8 key right when Windows starts, usually right after you hear your computer beep when you reboot it (some versions of windows will display 'Starting Windows' with a grey progress bar)
you will be brought to a menu where you can choose to boot into safe mode. If it does not work on the first try, reboot and try again, as you have to be quick when you press it.

Let me know how either of those go before we try something else.
