The main purposes of Spybot – Search & Destroy are preventing new and locating and removing existing malware.

The first purpose is taken care of by Live Protection, a feature of all paid editions, and the second one by our on-demand System Scanner.

The System Scanner checks the whole system against our constantly growing database of malware threats, and if your Spybot includes antivirus, it will also use an award-winning antivirus engine to scan selected or all drives for viruses. Updates to the virus engine are usually released multiple times a day.
