Hey all. Just wanted to report back to this post and mention that I uninstalled Spybot S&D, and have not had the scary red Kaspersky alert go off since.
I had a feeling that this was what was causing the issue (incompatibility between KIS2013 and SS&D) and it seems, so far, to be resolved.
I may as well mention that DANGGGG S S&D was pissed off when I uninstalled, lol. At first, I actually thought they weren't going to let me uninstall the software. During the uninstall, it asked the reason why I was taking this measure and a drop down box of reasons appeared. (Not kidding). I chose the "incompatibilities with Kaspersky" option, and immediately afterwards I got a pop-up box that was a bit like a break up letter, and I was the hated dumper.
I looked online to see what the heck crawled up Spybot's butt, lol. Discovered that there's a whole soap opera going on that I wasn't aware of, lol.
Anyway. Kaspersky? Spybot is really, REALLY MAD. :icon22:
I wish you two could get along. There's no reason why the two of you shouldn't co-exist together on the same hard drives. Oh well. I payed for Kaspersky, so Spybot has to go for now. (Damn, I do feel bad. Kinda....guilty. Like I ate meat on fish Friday and my Italian Roman Catholic mom found the McDonald's cheeseburger in my hand.)
Thanks for the help.
