Anybody else had this?

I'm running WinXP SP3 / IE7 and applied the CSS workaround linked to from click here in the part that reads "or run one of its automated "Fix-it" tools to add a custom CSS template to their browsers as protection until a patch is available"

Spybot now reports this as a Possible Hijacker.

Have had this now on 3 PCs (all on WinXP SP3 / IE7). On the 2nd and 3rd PCs, ran SpyBot just before and just after applying the workaround. It is clearly this workaround that is causing the FP.

Avast, Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware don't have any issues with it though.

Have now reported this as a FP to Safer Networking (aka SpyBot)
