I have a couple of questions that I hope you folks will answer for me.

A couple of months ago a Sbybot-Sd Resident logo appeared on my desktop. It shows as a small Spybot screen with a little lock on it. When I point my cursor on it a box appears that says:

Spybot -Sd Resident
1174 processes blacklisted.

I update and run Spybot S&D every day, and have done so for over a year.

Should there be more processes blocked ? What does that lock mean ??

I have Windows XP Home, Sp2, IE Browser.

Thank You for your time,
Dennis :thumbsup:

Hi Dennis H

As I understand it, the icon you mention just means that you are running Spybot with Resident Teatimer enabled. All good, you have a blacklist and realtime protection.

The main thing with Spybot is to IMMUNISE everytime you update the database - makes sure that all protection is enabled.
