Opening DISABLED files

Did your computer fail to open a DISABLED file? We explain what DISABLED files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your DISABLED files.

What is a DISABLED file?

Files that contain the .disabled file extension are used by the Spybot Search & Destroy anti-spyware application. Spybot is an anti-malware, anti-spyware and anti-adware application that protects your computer from the latest Internet threats.

When Spybot scans your computer for threats and finds malicious software lurking on your hard drive, the malicious applications are disabled and are given the .disabled file extension. This prevents them from operating on your system and causing damage and corruption to your computer files.

You should not remove the .disabled file suffix from these files. If you do, your computer may become vulnerable to the threats that the files contain.
