What version of Spybot is that? It looks an old version, the Immunisation certainly doesn't look like that in v1.4 or v1.5.

As to the WinPatrol, this is the hosts file. This may be caused by Spybot.

Everytime you update Spybot, those unprotected files comes up when you first do an immunize so what you need to do is click the immunize button once again (the button on the top and not the one on the left) to run the immunization and protect those unprotected things.

Alright, I went to the spybot forum and found this and hopefully this helps you about that 19 unprotected files.

I'm getting the same winpatrol thing about the hosts file and from what I've gathered (not very much though) that Spybot updates the windows' hosts file. Check this one http://forums.spybot...highlight=hosts

I also found this in one of the threads in that forum

By default the Spybot S&D 1.5 Immunization makes such entries into the hosts file to block bad hosts.
