    Everytime I run my Spybot SD, it always find DSO Exploit.

    And when I FIX it, it will disappear, but when i scan again

    the other day, Spybot SD will find again that DSO Exploit.

    I'm tired of fixing and fixing that DSO Exploit, because I think

    almost everyday i scan my computer through Spybot,

    DSO Exploit always come back. Any suggestions please? tnx

    in advance

    Is it a good idea to always ignore all DSO Exploits?

    ManBehindGod,

    I'm not saying it is or isn't ok. Just asking the question. I am certainly going to do some research on my own to find out more about it.

    Otherwise it's kinda like disabling your anti-virus software so you don't keep getting messages about being infected.

    Here is a copy of a post about DSO Exploit I Posted awhile back and the solution.
    If all your critical updates are installed you are protected against DSO Exploit and the finding in Spybot is just a nuisance. Eliminate this by doing the following:

    1 Open Spybot and select 'advanced' mode.
    2 Select 'settings' in the left column.
    3 Select 'ignore product' in the left column.
    4 Select 'security' tab.
    5 Place check mark in box beside DSO Exploit.
    6 Close program
    7 Open Spybot and run a scan.

    You will find that DSO Exploit has been eliminated and if your computer does not harbour any other spyware you will see a congratulatory message
