The fifth beta release of Spybot-S&D 2.0 is ready!

In this Beta, as always, we have reacted to our users requests. As a result Beta 5 has important subsurface improvements:

    We have revised the Uninstaller.
    Memory consumption during scans has been optimized.
    The detection criteria were improved and now detect more malicious files.
    Extended logging is now easier to understand.

We have also added support for big fonts and made navigation without a mouse easier.

Once again we would like to thank those users who submitted bug reports.

Beta 5 features:

    Start Center: New views have been added and links have been revised.
    Refreshed the GUI: The navigation bar has been shortened.
    The dialogs have been edited.
    Files and Folder Scan detects even more malware (by extending the heuristic scope).
    Files on any network resource can now be scanned (viz. UNC support).
    The Rootkit scanner has been updated.
    Memory consumption has been reduced.
    Event logging has been updated.
    The installer now prompts to uninstall a previously installed version of Spybot-S&D 2.0.
    The uninstall procedure has been optimized.
    Issues with Windows Security Center and Action Center integration have been fixed.
    The "Jump to registry" mechanism has been optimized. The content of any detected item in your registry can now be easily checked.
    Grouping has been added to SDUpdate.
    Support for blind users has been improved.
    Support for big fonts has been added.
    Increased interoperability with 3rd party scanners.

Remember it is a beta and as such not a replacement for the stable version 1.6.2.

Known issues:

    Tests on Windows 8 are not finished yet.
    Previous betas were dedicated to getting feedback for ‘Live Protection’; this version does not have ‘Live Protection’ in order to get feedback on the other components independent of the ‘Live Protection’.


been using it for a few days now and seems to be working find found over 45 cookies and registry entries that did not belong!!

So far Cool!
