I haven't been able to find an updated add-on of SpyBot Search and Destroy. I've gotten real tired of installing SpyBot S&D, updating, then having to immunize systems after I installed operating systems on the computer. Yesterday, I thought "Why can't I write an add-on so that Spybot S&D is already installed and the system is immunized?". So here is the result of my efforts that I started yesterday.Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.
To see a list of threats Spybot-S&D can remove, in the navigation bar at the left click on Support --> Threats. For an introduction to Spybot-S&D, please read the tutorial. If you fear incompatibility with other software you are now using, although we can assure you that there is no danger you can review our compatibility overview which lists some software whose compatibility has been analyzed.
Spybot-S&D can also clean usage tracks, an interesting function if you share your computer with other users and don't want them to see what you have been working on. And for professional users, Spybot-S&D allows you to fix some registry inconsistencies and extended reports. A list of all the application's features is also available.

v1.0 - Original release of the SpyBotSD v1.6.2 True Add-On (built Oct 23, 2011)
[spoiler]Options available in this Add-On:
(1) If you don't want TeaTimer installed and running by default, remove the TeaTimer.AddReg lines from of each AddReg line under DefaultInstall and SpyBotSD. You can also remove the INF section TeaTimer.AddReg.
(2) If you don't want the Explorer extensions installed, remove Explorer.AddReg on the AddReg line under DefaultInstall and SpyBotSD. You can also remove the INF section Explorer.AddReg.
(3) If you don't want your system immunized by default against websites that download malicious stuff to your computer, remove the [Immunize.AddReg] section of this INF, as well as the Immunize.AddReg part of each AddReg line under DefaultInstall and SpyBotSD. Beware, the Immunize.AddReg section is HUGE and responsible for most of this INF file's size. There also is a Hosts file inside this add-on that should be deleted before integration.
(4) If you don't want the desktop shortcut, remove Desktop.Shortcut from the ProfileItems line in the DefaultInstall and SpybotSD sections.[/spoiler]
