    Spybot 1.3 detected and "fixed" (5) DSO exploit items, but failed to bring up the congratulations, you've cleaned up the problem. My understanding is although the "checked items" still remain (they have a large, vivid green checkmark) on the screen, that they HAVE been fixed but a bug in the program doesn't allow removal of the items from the screen. My QUERY is whether or not what still remains will interfere with future downloads, since I plan to download Zone Alarm and follow that with the XP SP2 mega-patch.

    Any explanations will be received with great interest. Thanks for your help on this matter. Ivan Kogan
