How many 4 or 5?

4 ok 5 requires DSO stop2 click here

If 4 (and after runing DSOSTop2) run spybot click settings-click ignore products- click security - tick the DSO exploit box.

Yes safe but you may find that Spybot reports the same thing the next time you run it. This is a bug in Spybot.

You can also run the Decombobulator click here

It’s a combined Bug of Spybot and IE, it cannot harm your system
