What is “Partial” Live Protection?

October 19th, 2015

“Live Protection : Partial” means that Spybot’s Live Protection is installed, but is not scanning new processes on your PC.

It will still continue to scan any active processes that are open, but will not scan any new processes that begin.

You can set Live Protection to “partial” by unticking the checkbox beside “Scan all program before they start” in the Live Protection Settings window.

To get to the Live Protection Settings window:

  • Open Spybot by right clicking on the Spybot icon and clicking “Run as administrator”.
  • Click on the Live Protection status in the Start Center.
