Fix Spybot Search and Destroy Annoyance

As you know I am a huge fan of Spybot Search and Destroy as I mentioned in a previous post.  However, like everything there is always annoyances involved.  The biggest annoyance to me is when running Spybot and getting results back saying Windows firewall, security center, etc.


To turn these reads off highlight the problem, right click, and choose “Exclude this product from further searches”. 


Next time you run Spybot Search and Destroy these entries will no longer come up.  You can do this with any of the results you want.
