    Hi,

    Spybot version 1.4 constantly reports 4 additional updates possible
    after I immunize (by using the green cross button at the top of the
    screen).

    I click on the button and it reports that all is OK but if I click the
    check again button it reports 4 additional protections possible.

    If exit the program and then run it again it still says 4 additional
    protections possible.

    I have had this problem for a while now. I have updated the definition
    files a few times since I noticed the problem.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    With Windoze9x, same thing happened to me, 6603 blocked, 3 more possible.
    Immunize and all 6606 are blocked, check again SB says 6603 blocked 3 more possible.

    With XP on another computer, I have to right click SB icon, choose option to not protect, then run (or SBS&D won't start).
    Then if I check after immunizing SB says 6606 blocked everytime.

    Seems the activity is blocked already and SB attempt to immunize is also blocked. OR
    some prog is blocking SB and allowing a connection to be made. Realmedia.com and
    akaimai get through the built in blocks of Firefox, SBS&D, etc. via my ISP and have to be
    selectively firewalled.

    Reason on my eqpt. is background progs that auto block certain activity at set level. High protection won't let
    some progs, like Opera, run. S'funny when opera won't run because of activity block, Foxfire runs fine.
