    hope tis is correct section aploogies if it isnt , help needed please, recently i downloaded real alternative player/classic which i removed when i dioscovered adaware, thinking myself smart having most preventative programs i wasnt worried as spysweeper removed all of it , well so i thought, today i turned on my pc to be confronted by winpatrol telling me my pc had been modified but gave me no real information , i installed spybot and found dso exploit , ran the program but it was still tere , i know spybot has a bug ie error message so i tried a total restore from my dvd ghost backup to find it was still there , apparently lurking undetected on my pc , id have never known but accidently found it , now i need help please to remove it ,can you advise , if i change from explorer to opera can i still keep and use windows media player 9.0 forgive my greeness but my pc knowledge hasnt got around to what can be used with what , i want to salvage my pc thanks

    If you keep getting DSO Expliot (5) Five of them, its a bug in Spybot.
    Dont worry to much about it, and just keep scanning with Adaware, Spybot and Spysweeper and you should be pretty safe.

    Thanks for the reply , I have been busy since my last post , trawling the net etc , I took plunge restored from ghost backup , but same results ,so restored again methodically ploughed through pc removed items from trusted zones etc ie tesco.net an old isp , and owt else i didnt like the look of ha ha! done a system restore point, arranged for my pc doctor to call , anyway I did find out the following apparently a file has been got at in the registry according to one site something about to fix the problem you have to edit and rename a file in the registry key 1104 delete reg sz value and give it the hex value of 3 way above my wee head , but its annoying when you do take care what you download and you still get zapped I now figured out a recent download of real alternative may have been responsible but that is only a guess as thats the last download i did

    tried adaware too, some say its a spybot prob others an internet explorer fault , ive asked my pc engineer to call ,may just do a total reinstall , backup to dvd and painstakingly reinstall all programs, but again it can happen to me it can happen to anyone microsoft should have a patch to fix this

    Hey

    It is a known problem with Spybot.

    As i said before, not much to worry about if you have all of Windows Updates like the above says.
