Scanning your PC for spyware can be a boring process.  Well there is a cool “Easter egg” in Spybot Search and Destroy which allows you to play a game of removing squares to reveal a painting by Leonardo da Vinci.  This works in Spybot Search & Destroy 1.4

Start up Spybot Search & Destroy and initiate a scan.  While the scan is running, click on the binoculars located under Help.



You will hear a horse sound and the game will start up!


Just something cool added in to our favorite anti-spyware application you may not have known about.
