    Hello,
    Does anyone out there remember Spybot?
    I used to have that program and it seemed to work really well with my old PC (Windows XP Professional). But Spybot doesn't work with my Windows 7. At least that version doesn't.
    I was wondering if anyone out there is familiar with a piece of software similar to spybot that works with windows 7.
    Thanks a lot!

    The last few malware cases I have had nothing including malwarebytes found anything. I have been forced to re-image the computer. Did spy bot find anything? That is one software package I have not used.
