Spybot Search and Destroy Detection Update is a utility designed to help users update the definitions of their Spybot - Search and Destroy without relying on the WebUpdate component or requiring a working Internet connection.
Spybot - Search and Destroy is a security software solution that can help users detect whether their computer is being monitored or infected by various malicious applications. Those range from annoying toolbars, homepage changes and browser crashes but sometimes there is no way a user can figure out he has been infected, as many spyware components are silently tracking your activity and uses the information to the benefit of its creator.
Although installing a spyware monitor such as Spybot - Search and Destroy, this is not enough, as its definition must be kept up-to-date on a regular basis, for enhanced and efficient protection. However, a computer that is not connected to the Internet might be unable to perform the operation described above.
After launching Spybot Search and Destroy Detection Update, users need to specify the path of the spyware detection utility on the target computer and follow the on-screen instructions provided by the installer. Checking the definitions' version can be done from the host application by navigating to the About section under the Help menu.
