Help.. am I infected??

  Steve M 18:36 20 Sep 2004

I fell victim to the dreaded 'about:blank'which took over my IE homepage and wouldn't let me get back to Google ... I now scan my HDD regularly with Spybot,Ad-aware and a-squared and each time Spybot reports the presence of 'DSO Exploit' .. I am then given the option to destroy, which I take, but the blighter is back when I next boot my machine ...has my BIOS or registry been infected?? if so how can I restore/repair??

It is a bug in Spybot, don't worry.

Evening stalion :o)

Steve M - In Spybot, Mode/Advanced Mode. Click on Settings, then on Settings again. Tick Display available Beta versions. This will get you the latest version with the bug fixed.

Hmmm ....downloaded the latest version, ran it ..BANG !! DSO Exploit large as life ....not too bothered at least I know it's not a problem with my machine ... or do I need to re-boot then run Spybot??
