DSO Exploit

  Citizen Snips 17:48 15 Jan 2005

Hello there,

I've recently started using Spy Bot Search and Destroy in my quest to protect myself from the dreaded spyware and adware that haunt the net and try to infest your PC. I also use Lavasoft's Adware and Spyware Blaster alongside Spybot,and have the complete Norton 2004 internet security suite installed,which I update daily. However,I've found Spybot digs up five entries under DSO Exploit everytime I run the scan,I then select them and click to "fix the problem", which then states that the spyware's been removed.

However, if I run the scanner again,it dig's up the exact same thing. My understanding of these things is limited,but as I understand it these DSO exploits can be used to hijack your browser homepage. Therefore can anyone suggest anything I can do to permanently rid myself of these things?

There is a fix available but note the mention of the version number of your Spybot software.

Helpfull tip to remember (if not already done).
Type in your problem title in the search box,
eg "DSO" & click the green box. You can
guarantee that someone has had the problem & the solutions will be in the archive, plus it saves the regular guru's repeating over & over.
