    I have Spybot Search & Destroy. Every time I search for problems, it finds "DSO Exploit........5 entries"

    I can run it over & over & delete this problem & it's always there.

    Does anyone know what this is? :help:

    Thanks in advance for your help. :bassist:

    It's probably a piece of code that executes everytime windows starts. So you remove it.... until you next reboot.

    Try Spy Sweeper, thats apparently pretty good for getting rid of stuff like this.

    I have NoAdware, also but that doesn't pick it up.

    Ok...

    Switch to advanced mode by:

    Mode > advanced mode

    now on side click on settings (its the big bar on the left)

    Now click on Ignore products (inside the box that apears or in the settings tab on the left sidebar)

    In there click on security tab (inside the box that apears in center/right of the left sidebar)

    there is going to be DSO exploit... check it

    Go back to scan... its on a left sidebar under spybot s&d tab

    Then rescan... remove

    should work
    Hope it works
    YAY


    Cheers

    Or, you can run "regedit" and search for the entry called "RunOnce", usually that has a list of stuff that's supposed to run at startup, and you'll find something in there that isn't supposed to be there. Only do this if you know what's supposed to be there. :D
