Spybot Search & Destroy version 2 soon to come out....
« on: November 19, 2012, 07:29:47 PM »
Ten years after the former version appeared a new version of Spybot Search & Destroy will come out:

Will this be something we have been waiting for or is the proggie update also obsolete?
Like to hear your opinions.
I for one feel great with MBAM and SAS non-residential as additions to my resident avast av-solution...

Me I don't go looking for solutions to problems that don't exist, e.g. if my current anti-spy/malware programs complimenting avast work just fine.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 21.8.2487 (build 21.8.6586.697) UI 1.0.666/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

If MBAM and SAS doing their job and you don't have any problems, and you have Avast together then why choose another software when it not broken or getting you screwed for solutions to problems that don't exist.

I agree with DavidR ;)

For what it's worth cnet.com still offers SpyBot S&D v1.6.2. http://download.cnet.com/Spybot-Search-Destroy/3000-8022_4-10122137.html
So far as my research has gone I have yet to find any good reviews for v2.0.
They are still working on improving detection rates. IOW they still don't have a usable product.  :)
Dell Inspiron, Win10x64--HP Envy Win10x64--Both systems Avast Free v17.9.2322, Comodo Firewall v8.2 w/D+, MalwareBytes v3.0, OpenDNS, Super Anti-Spyware, Spyware Blaster, MCShield, Unchecky, Vivaldi Browser and, various browser security tools.
