Incomplete immunization: Items are still unprotected

October 19th, 2015

You need to run the immunization with elevated privileges (as an administrator), otherwise all global immunizations will fail.

To ensure that Immunization is applied correctly, please disable all other security programs that you run and close all browsers and any other programs during the work with Spybot – Search & Destroy.

To Immunize your browser:

  • Open Spybot “Start Center” by right clicking on the icon  and choosing  “Run as Administrator”.
  • Run as Administrator

  • Go to “Immunization”.
  • Click “Check System”, then click “Apply Immunization”.

The main reasons why Immunization would fail are:

  • A path is not detected.
  • The object is blocked by something; e.g. a security program.
  • The user does not have appropriate rights for Immunizing an object.
