Since version 1.5 Spybot-S&D is kept up to date by the Updater, a separate tool. To start it, please click on Update in the navigation bar. If you want to, you can also click on the button Search for Updates – then the window showing additional update types (2.) is skipped and you start immediately with the server list (3.).
If you have clicked on Update a new window opens. There you can select two additional update types: beta and language updates. To go on, please click on Search.
Select a download location (the nearer to you the better) and click on Continue.
Select all available updates who are relevant for you (detection updates are already preselected). By clicking on Download you download them. Updates will be installed without any further action needed.
Spybot is maintained by a team of people very dedicated to privacy issues, many of which are working full-time on analysing masses of new threats each week, and the response time from our support team is better than that of many a commercial vendor. We would appreciate it if you would honour our efforts with a moderate donation. Donate
