Spybot error message re Hijackers.sbi

    Hi there!

    The last couple of times I've run Spybot, during the scan I get the following message which says an error was encountered when scanning:

    C:/Program FIles/Spybot-Search_Destroy/Includes/Hijackers.sbi

    The message tells me to check my error report and apart from that, my only option is to close out of the dialogue box.

    I tried to locate error reports when the scan was completed but couldn't find it anywhere.

    So here I am, asking if someone can please help explain what this error is and how to clear it?

    cheers muchly

    Am running 1.3.1TX version. Is this really out of date? :-((

    Yes it is, you need to update to Spybot S&D 1.4 and then get all updates.

    Download SpyBot S&D 1.4

    After you get this update, reboot and run another scan and see if you still get the error.
