I like the immunization feature, that's all I like. However, for some reason, Spy Bot wants to run on startup every time.
System services are all deactivated (security center, scanner, updating). However, for some strange reason, Spy Bot runs on startup. Why is it so difficult to design the application to not run on startup? It isn't scanning, it isn't immunizing, it isn't updating, WHY IS IT RUNNING ON STARTUP?
Spybots team of ‘Forensic Detectives’ constantly monitor the Internet for new threats and attack vectors so it is important, that in order for software to give maximum protection, it is regularly updated.

I have unchecked every option within the program but it still wants to run on startup. Why do I need to use a 3rd party tool to remove your application from startup?
Honestly it is really simple, don't force your app to run if the user doesn't want it. This has been Bloatware ever since 2.x came around, and detection rates aren't all that great compared to something like Malware Bytes.They should follow the UNIX concept of building a rock-solid & secure foundation that DOESN'T crash and is non-hack-able with viruses, spyware, malware, etc.
