I was wondering if any of you have any idea as to what this is. (spyware quandary)

Every time I run spybot s&d it finds this:

DSO Exploit: Data source object exploit
HKEY_USERS.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0\1004!=W=3

do any of you have any clue as to what it is or how to be rid of it?

Hmm, Check out your start up thingys (msconfig). See if there anything that is dodgy, that is reseting the Registry value.

Or Google the registry path, and see what you find :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s a security hole in IE (I think it was IE, forgot what). Spybot detects it and fixes it for you.

It detects it, but it never fixes it.

I’m pretty sure there’s a patch released by Microsoft. Download it from Windows Update.

Well, Spybot fixes it for me, so yeah :stuck_out_tongue:
