What is DSO Exploits

Question

SpyBot Search and Destroy continues to mark "DSO Exploit" as spyware. We tell SpyBot to "fix the selected problems," and then it says "6 problems fixed." However, these six "DSO Exploit" files must immediately be reinstalled because if we run SpyBot again after the fix, it finds the same six "DSO Exploit" problems again and again. What are these "DSO Exploits" and how do we remove them permanently?

You can download & run DSOStop2 from http://www.nsclean.com/dsostop.html it will take care of that problem.

I think this only affects internet explorer, not mozilla It's not a virus, trojan or anything like that Be sure to keep your version of windows updated .
