Suggestion for "Spybot Search & Destroy" cleaning

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

It would be great if CCleaner also deletes the unnecessary ZIP files in the update folder of Spybot. After the update process they are not needed anymore.

(Version 1.6.2, "C:\Program Files (x86)\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Updates")

 

And all the unnecessary backups of the windows hosts file. Every time you immunize your system Spybot adds a new backup file. I think keeping the latest one is enough.

("C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc", "hosts.yyyymmdd-nnnnnn.backup")

 

Thank you and kind regards,

Michael

Tested the first suggestion, worked fine and didn't get any problems with SpyBot (didn't have to download those again etc). In the meantime this could be added to Winapp2.ini-file.

[spybot Search & Destroy Updates]
LangSecRef=3024
DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Updates
Default=False
FileKey1=%ProgramFiles%\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Updates|*.zip

For hosts backups:

[spybot Hosts Backups*]
LangSecRef=3024
DetectFile=%ProgramFiles%\Spybot - Search & Destroy
Default=False
FileKey1=%WinDir%\System32\drivers\etc|hosts.*.backup
