Has Spybot found something?

  Mike D 11:16 26 Jun 2006

I hae recently started to get the following 2 items showing when I run Spybot:

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftSecurity CenterAntiVirus Override!=dword:0"
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftSecurity CenterFirewall Override!=dword:0"

I now run Avast antivirus and Sygate Firewall (recently ditched BT Yahoo's Norton offerings).

Do I need to worry about these, or can I ignore or even delete them?

They are the default settings for Norton I think as my registry contains these lines. I am running NIS 2004. Do not know why Spybot has seen fit to expose these, perhaps not required any more but hardly spyware is it.

Brilliant, thanks VoG™.

Another one resolved!
