I rebooted yesterday and noticed my softphone said the 911 was "not connected, service not available" or something to that effect. I had no green, yellow or red.

The only thing I'd done since the last reboot was install Spybot Search & Destroy.

Uninstalled Spybot, rebooted and my 911 was green again.

Just putting it here for the record. I don't need the 911.

Some folks claim that Spybot is very outdated now. Once it was very good but I just read a PC Mag article that said it was way past its prime. I use Threatfire now.

Spybot has been around forever. I never have had a problem with Spybot messing up MJ, but now I think I will check out this Threatfire thingy.
