Question Spybot - Search & Destroy Administrator Problems

Hello! I've been using Spybot - Search & Destroy for some time now. I've been using it in my WinXP but when I installed it in Vista I've encountered problems that I haven't experienced before. Whenever I immunize a WARNING window will pop out.

It says: This action may not be performed completely since you are not an administrator. If you want this performed for all users, please run this application elevated as an administrator.

Although I'm the administrator of my laptop, I can't get it immunize. What should I do? Any help will be appreciated. Thank you!

Hi

What you can do is to add the Run as Administrator to the SB S&Ds shourtcut properties, to do this right click the SB shourtcut and choose properties > click Compatability tab and at the bottom under Priviledge Level tick "Run this Program as an Administrator" and click Apply > OK

this way a soon as you click to run it, its in Admin mode, saves right clicking each time.

Ah ok, try adding it directly to the main exe for spybot if the shortcut doesnt do it, seems really poor programming MarkT if you have to run SB via right click each time, I know many will pop up a UAC message when run and is normal.
