problem with dso exploits

  0000jb0000 20:07 21 Jun 2004

I have just bought a AMD ATHLONE 2600 PRO MODEL 40 Gig hard drive 256DDR RAM which has Spybot installed on it. I ran 'check for errors' not expecting to find anything. But (in red meaning real threat) was 'DSO Exploit 1 entries Registry change' It also said 'HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows'. I clicked the 'fix the problem' button, but it will not go away. What is it and how do I get rid?

have you tried turning off system restore first, then running your spyware cleaner?

spybot makes a backup in case you want to restore your changes. You can delete the backup if you want to.

I used Spybot to fix it, but it come back after the PC reboot. The strange thing is that other spy search program such as Spysweeper cannot find it.

It has nothing to do with Restore because I use Win2k which does not have restore.

Anyone know what this thing "dso exploits" really do, I think maybe Spybot is to sensitive to it.
