This version will leave trash behind in the registry and also leaves a Windows Service running. For a real stealth version of this application visit the thread I created for it here:

The entry's description should make clear that what's offered here is the PortableApps package. Upstream Spybot S&D v2.5 ditched XP support, and XP users are advised to stay with v2.4:

Moreover, the upstream download page only lists v2.4 (older versions still available):

System requirements should not include Vista for v2.6

Have a Happy Holiday everyone :)

Beware! Even you don't clean anything, the portable package leaves numerous traces in the system: hard to find registry keys (search also for "Safe Networking Limited") and a stubborn folder in ProgramData plus one in AppData\Roaming (unfortunately I didn't wrote down all the traces before cleaning up).

ClamWin v0.98.6 released:

This release updates ClamAV scanning engine to the latest version and brings following improvements:
* Bug fixes in detection of files produced by upx, upack and mew packagers
* Other bug fixes and feature improvements

Download the latest version here:

Midas on 2015-05-16 21:13

Please note that, for updating purposes, you needn't download the full 100MB+ ClamWin package.

Just go to, find the latest version folder and download the clamwin-0.9x.x-setup-nodb.exe, which is only about 8MB -- after (Uni)extracting, you'll find all the files you need for updating in the '{app}\bin' folder...
