As an experiment, remove them then monitor which sites you visit and see if re occur.

Is there not a help site for spybot, I just run it once a week and these are all that get detected

Dont worry about dso exploits, this is a bug in spybot that has yet to be fixed, you'll find that they appear all the time no matter how many times you "fix" them, they are harmelss though. To explain a little more read this thread click here and dso stop click here

Thanks I've just downloaded DSOstop 2. Will give it a go and come back.

I've run the fix but Spybot still shows 4 entries.

You'll just have to live with the little blighters like all of us do. at least until spybot iron out the problems :-)

The help site for S and D is already on your computer system - it's the Help section for S and D...:-)

It explains what all the various spybots etc are and what steps to take, including configuration.

Hope I am not being too paranoid but will these DSO whatsits compromise my security in any way.
