Spybot 2.5 is soon to be released for download. While it may look the same as version 2.4, there have been some changes made to this version to ensure compatibility with Microsoft’s new Windows 10.
Unfortunately, these changes mean Spybot 2.5 is not compatible with Windows XP or Windows Vista. Users of these operating systems are advised to continue to use version 2.4 for now.
If you are installing Spybot using your license file, version 2.5 may also be automatically installed. For this reason, XP and Vista users are advised to install Spybot 2.4 Free Edition from any of the links provided on our mirrors page, and then run the license file to apply it to the Free Edition of Spybot 2.4 which you installed.
