I have been using SpyBot for several weeks successfuuly and have become familiar with the popup message where I must select "Allow" or Deny(?) a registry change. Somewhere along the line this popup message has changed slightly. It appears distorted with no option to allow or deny the change. The only portion which is still there is "REmember this change". So my only choice is to "X" out the message which I believe is just denying the change when I often want to allow it. Hope that makes sense to someone!! So, I have tried System Restore but that option is not working well on this machine. I have uninstalled and reinstalled SpyBot but the message still looks the same. Any suggestions??

Tried deleting all the spybot registry entries? Make sure you make a backup of your registry before you try anything though.

Yes...I deleted all spybot registry entries. I'm not sure if I'm describing the problem well enough. I already took Spybot off the computer with Add/REmove Programs. Then went out and downloaded a new one. Ran that and got the 'bad' message again. It's as if spybot is trying to send the popup that I have seen many times but when I view it, it is somehow distorted and where I used to click to either allow or deny the change is just not there.. I think the message is the same as it has always been except that most of the popup is unreadable now.
