After running spybot, the check shows a folder DSO Exploit which includes five files called HKEY USERS. Can anyone advice if i can delete these, or fix them as spybot asks?
Thanks

This may be a Spybot bug - You need to upgrade to version 1.3.1 to ensure it is not.

You can fix them but the next time Spybot runs they may be still shown. This is a known bug in Spybot.

just ignore the DSO exploit, this was a problem that microsoft provided a patch for about 2 years ago. So as long as your system is fully patched then you don't need to worry.

As VoG said it is a bug in spybot and you can safely ignore it. The latest version is v1.3 The beta versions are not recommended for ordinary home use.
