Question 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

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.
