How can I get "Spybot Anti-Beacon"?

HP Recommended
hp Pavilion
Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)

I had to do a factory reset & clean install on my PC. I'm running Windows 8 Enterprise & I had the app before but now when I try to go to Safer-networking.org & get the free app, I get "page will not load, try again later", EVERY time no matter what time of day or night.

 

Can anyone tell me WHY this is happening now?

How can I get the free download of "Spybot Anti-Beacon ver. 1.6" now?

 

Thank you.

@My1stlaptop, welcome to the forum.

 

I don't know what could be causing your problem.  I suggest trying this link to see if you can download version 2.2:

 

https://www.safer-networking.org/products/spybot-anti-beacon/

 

Scroll down to the Download section of the page.  It doesn't show 8.1 Enterprise in the compatible list, but I would think it should work.  If not, you should contact their Tech Support.

 

I tried the download and it worked for me using Win 10 Pro.

 

Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

Just tried the link you suggested. It sent me to the same page.  I am still getting the "this page can't be displayed" It also says:

Make sure the web address https://www.safer-networking.org is correct.

 

& the usual other garbage.

 

But, the URL in the address bar is:

https://download.spybot.info/AntiBeacon/SpybotAntiBeacon-2.2-setup.exe

 

So that just confuses this situation even more.

 

Thanks for trying. Your help is appreciated.

I'm using a laptop with win 8 right now.  It's a bit slower than the desktop, due to the processors. the desktop has a quad core with 4 - 3.60 , this laptop has a quad core of 2.60's.

 

 

I'll keep trying until I get the download.

 

I'll give you the "thumbs up" for trying, but I cannot say it has solved my problem, not yet.

 

Any other suggestions?

 

Thank you.
