From personal experience, i ran Spybot twice on my Vista when my computer was functioning slow as a last option - i had defragmented, deleted extraneous memory, run disk cleanups, etc....- and both times i ran Spybot within a day my computer broke and i had to REINSTALL my software...

    No, I have vista also,and running Spybot right now. I also have several other "aces" on my pc. Advnced Windows Care, (www.iobit.com) Zone Alarm, WinPatrol and Ad-Aware (www.cnet.com).Best of all the price is free...versions on all.Plus when you run Spybot click on immunize to block infections.

    Spybot S+D is a good programme, it is used by millions and is trusted and is in no way bad for your PC.... i suggest that you look elsewhere for the errors. Try using CCleaner as well.... it removes crap from the pc allowing faster running with less memory clogged by garbage - and its free (and again trusted by millions).

    Give us a shout if all else fails and I will talk you through other solutions

    Good luck
