MS Anti-Spyware Conked Out: Need Advice
« on: February 19, 2006, 05:07:55 AM »
 :rose: Microsoft Anti-Spyware B-1 won't launch.
it SEEMS to: but after a couple seconds, my HardDrive light stops flashing, and MS Anti-S SITS THERE, like a DEAD LOX. :hysterical:
CONTROL-ALT-DELETE shows that it's "RUNNING" -- but when i END PROCESS, it says MS AntiSpyware WON'T RESPOND.
 ** i was thinking, the best next step is to UNINSTALL, then RE-DOWNLOAD it off MS's boards.
-- does that sound right?
-- is a simple Uninstall enough, or do i need to HAND-DELETE certain parts of the App that stick around?
 :Win73: :Win73: (IDEA: instead of being called microsoft anti-spyware beta-1, product should be called MS anti-spyware smegma-1)  :tease:
(thanks for all your help, guys :thumbsup: )

You may wish to try our latest beta of Windows Defender, available at

This replaces Microsoft Antispyware (Beta).
