When I run 'spybot', the only problem highlighted is 'Exploit'.
When I look at the info for this, it appears that it is a microsoft url that is the problem.
Can anyone tell me what exactly IS exploit?
Could I, and should I, get rid of it?

Regards,

Seems to be a bug with Spybot - keeps throwing up this DSO exploit; if you have all MS Updates you should be ok - nothing to worry about.

Thank you, Diodorus, while I don't really understand what is going on I've downloaded the suggested fix and installed it.

I feel that, with your advice, I've made the right moves and feel more more secure for doing so.

Thank you for your help.

regards,
