SpyBot has stopped working for me

Not sure at what point... it's been a while since I've booted this.

Here's the message I get after I say "ignore" when it prompts me about needing admin rights:

"Runtime Error 216 at 5003A116"

New to me.

Thx.

More Info

Please supply additional details like OS, 32vs64 bit, full install path, new install vs upgrade, etc.

Note that Spybot no longer works on Windows XP.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

hmmmm

New install vs. upgrade? I *thought* the recommended path was to use the platform install method... and allow it to auto upgrade?

I don't know if it's been upgraded (didn't really pay attention to which apps gave me the message that they were being updated).

Only noticed that *this time* when I tried to launch Spy Bot I got a very different error (let alone that any error was different - but did see this type of error on 2 or three other apps).

Run As Admin, Bug Details

All bug reports on any site benefit from complete details so that we can attempt to reproduce your issue and should be included with every possible bug post. That's why knowing the OS version, 32 vs 64-bit, and full install path are important. Knowing whether it's a fresh install or an upgrade helps us rule out things like a corrupt settings file or something the user changed in settings that is affecting things. All of that helps us to help you. Without all those details, it's just shots in the dark.

It worked at one time...

So, recently it stopped working (used to work with only some functionality disabled).

I'm on Win 7 Pro 64-bit
