When I run spybot I get a clean bill of health apart from this error message.
"due to another programme using this cannot access" (type of message)

The programme in question is Xuron 55 in C:\ Win ini
It is also in a foreign language which makes me suspicious.

Any ideas?
thanks

For the following error:

Error during check!: **various** (File C:\WINDOWS\wininit.ini (also win.ini or system.ini) cannot be opened. The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process) ()

The following applies:
The error message translated from German to English is:
Datei = File.
kann nicht geöffnet werden = cannot be opened.
Therefore:
Error during check!: **various** (File C:\WINDOWS\wininit.ini (also win.ini or system.ini) cannot be opened. The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process) ()
The error terminates the scan.

Probable cause:

An old "advcheck.dll" program.

To check:

Make sure that the "Modified" date on C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\advcheck.dll (right click > Properties) is:
Monday, October 04, 2004 or later.

If the advcheck.dll is old it must be updated. The method that you use to update the advcheck.dll depends or how you normally update Spybot-S&D.

If you normally update Spybot-S&D using the integrated update facility within Spybot-S&D:
Go into Spybot > Update
Click "Search for Updates"
Check everything found

One of the updates should be for:

Advanced detection library - Advanced detection routines update (75 KB) - 2004-10-14
Click "Download Updates"

If you normally download updates directly from safer-networking.org:
Go to the following WEB page:

Downloads – The home of Spybot-S&D!

http://www.safer-net...load/index.html

There is an item on that page described as follows:

Advanced check library update 2004-10-14 - product description

This is an update for a detection library. Only needed if you do not want to use the update function integrated into Spybot-S&D.

Download and execute the installation program (spybotsd_advcheck.exe) to install the new advcheck.dll. The direct download link is:
http://www.spybotupd...sd_advcheck.exe
