Hi everyone. New to the forums. I have a school that features interactive IT and English classes. Lots of computers and always issues. One thing that popped up is our spyware program. I have been using Spybot for many years and never had an issue with it. The school is a different thing though. Spybot is causing some issues like deleting class software and such. It sees it as a threat and deletes things that cause the software to not function correctly. We have just discovered this and its a problem. Takes a lot of time to reload this stuff. Is there a different program out there that might be better? Thanks ahead of time.

You could try Microsoft Security Essentials.  What version of Windows do you have?

Try the Microsoft Security Essentials.  Tell  us if you have any problems with it.

Never heard of that happening.  Uninstall it or restore from the Restore Point that would have been created when MSE was installed.

Or please read the Instructions and post the requested logs. We need the information in order to help you.
