Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.6.0

Since Firefox 3 and Opera 9.5 support are much asked for, further speed improvements have been postponed (expect some beta update for advcheck.dll as soon as 1.6 is out though ) and we're trying to close in on the final version.

New in this release candidate is for example LASSH support for TeaTimer; in short words that means TeaTimer will now longer ask about every single registry change it does not recognize as pointing to a bad file, but will instead use the RunAlyzer LASSH database to automatically recognize and accept or deny nearly 400,000 different startup entries. This database has also been made available here on the forum, including an option for helpers to help rating new entries. Feedback on this would be appreciated.

The second new thing is that the Windows Explorer property dialog tab has been replaced by a stand-alone application (thanks to everyone insisting on this wish ) since the former was not very flexible and caused problems for some people. Instead, there is now a file/folder scanner with its own option in the context menu of files, which runs on 64 bit Windows as well (which the former solution didn't), should probably load its database somewhat faster, and allows drag'n'drop for scanning further files. Again, feedback would be welcome, especially from those who had problems with the former solution, but also about it in general.
