Spyware detection


How do I get rid of a spyware detection called DSO Exploit? I downloaded and installed Spybot Search and Destroy this morning, installed it, and then downloaded the updates. The prgram discovered 22 spyware programs and then reported that all the problems were fixed. I have repeatedly run the detection program, maybe 7 or 8 times, and DSO Exploit keeps showing up as a detection. I have shut down the computer after the software reports that the problem is fixed, and then run Spybot again, without getting onto the internet with my modem. DSO Exploit keeps coming back.

I checked out the source of DSO Exploit. Here is what showed up:

DSO Exploit: Data source object exploit (Registry change, nothing done)

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-583907252-492894223-854245398-500\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0\1004!=W=3

--- Spybot - Search && Destroy version: 1.3 ---

Open Spybot and at the top click on Mode,then advanced,then settings,then ignore products and scroll down till you find DSO Exploit and put a tick by it,you shouldn't be bothered with it again ......
