    All I got was an "English language" update, at 22 KB! I will look on the website...

    The other one is a beta update. You only get those if you have ticked "Display available beta versions" in the Web update section of Settings | Settings.

    Very true!

    It certainly displays a lot more entries in the System Startup section, and found quite a few more naughty things than the zero on the last run of 1.3!

    So far it seems to work OK here as well. The only thing it found that version 1.3 missed were a few tracking cookies.

    Version 1.4 Beta 1, looks Ok thus far.
    Will have to dig a little deeper to see if I can see obvious changes.
    It did seem a bit faster. All in my mind?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    It's odd that Spybot still seems to consider CTFMON.EXE to be Spyware in spite of <!mskb=282599>Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 282599<!/mskb>!

    Don't know about that one John, sorry. Maybe you could point it out to the authors. I really can't see why it would be included, but maybe Spybot have their own reasons/ criteria.
