This is just a friendly tip to pass along (feel free to edit or move if not appropriate). I just love the Spywareinfo site and wanted to give a tip (which you are likely aware of). I learned about it recently from the Internet Tourbus Ezine

*versions of spybot search & destroy equal to version 1.2 OR EARLIER aka older will NOT update on the web even if you choose update*

Once you uninstall the old version of Spybot Search & Destroy, you need to download and install the new version. Fortunately, there are dozens of mirror sites around the world from which you can download Spybot Search & Destroy 1.3. Fred Langa aka Langa Dot Com recently recommended


and that's good enough for me (says Tourbus). Click on a download site at the top of the page [look for the flags]. This should automatically download spybotSD13.exe to your computer. The file is 4.15 Mb in size, so it'll probably take a little over 10 minutes to download over the fastest dial-up connection. As I am fond of saying [and often forgetting when standing in line at Disneyland], patience is a virtue.

The rest of the process is self-explanatory, but if you'd like to see a step-by-step tutorial of how to install and use Spybot Search & Destroy, just head on over to


If you'd like to learn more about Ad-Aware 6, the other spyware tool that I highly recommend for PC users, check out my February 16, 2003, post at
