Re: Spybot question

When it's done, you choose the option to fix selected problems, and then it 
does delete whatever it found, unless you uncheck something in the list of 
problems it found. If you don't uncheck anything, it deletes everything it 
found when you choose that option. Take care.

When spy bot finds a piece of spyware does it delete it?  I know this sounds
rather elementary but I'm not used to working with all this stuff.  Judith
