    When I run spybot it it says that there are 5 DSO Exploit entries (listed below) which are highlighted in red.

    I then ask it to fix these and although it says that they are fixed when I run spybot again they are still there (and yes I have ticked the boxes next to each of these).

    Are these files OK just to stay there or should I be doing something different to remove them.

    The 5 files are:-

    DSO Exploit: Data source object exploit (Registry change, nothing done)
    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0\1004!=W=3

    DSO Exploit: Data source object exploit (Registry change, nothing done)
    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2974146706-1256799619-874574627-1006\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0\1004!=W=3

    DSO Exploit: Data source object exploit (Registry change, nothing done)
    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0\1004!=W=3

    DSO Exploit: Data source object exploit (Registry change, nothing done)
    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-19\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0\1004!=W=3

    DSO Exploit: Data source object exploit (Registry change, nothing done)
    HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0\1004!=W=3

    DSO Exploit is completely harmless. Just a glitch in SpyBot.

    MFDnSC's link should do the trick (y)

    Did what was suggested, it then came up with 19 entries which I asked it to fix.

    Ran spybot again and the problem is now solved - thanks
