Repair Environment (Spybot - Search & Destroy 2)

Spybot - Search & Destroy 2

Repair Environment

When the user executes the Repair Environment a new Windows Desktop is opened and the Start Center runs in there to allow the use of Spybot in a way where other software cannot interact and manipulate it as easily. The Windows Login screen and the User Account Control dialogs use the same technology to prevent keyloggers and other malware to have access and control.

A practical use of the Repair Environment would be where Spybot itself cannot be started any more, where it repeatedly closes out of the blue, seems to take actions on its own, or where malware that is known to exist on the system and that is known to be detectable does not appear in Spybots results.
