Spybot has noticed that there has been the change you created by setting IE properties from Advanced (when configured properly= More secure) to
Default (normally LESS secure). Hence some lock-down controls were disabled (1 at end of string means active, 0 means disabled).
If you used S&D's Tea Timer, it would prevent this action until you ok'd it in TT's pop-up request for approval. This is because it's not sure whether YOU created this change or if the change was instituted by a trojan or malware. Basically it's saying:
Your IE security has been reduced, are you sure you want to allow this?
The following page at Wilder's will give several listed suggested
secure setting links for IE including one for a free, small utility that will make some changes for you.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!
The first problem is with one of the computers my family have been using. My brother happened to be using that computer a few seconds when suddenly, the screen has darkened a little and a message appeared in the middle. I didn't get what it exactly say; one half of it is in chinese (can't type chinese here ), while the other in english. Switched off the computer immediately when I saw the message.
All I can remember is that the message asks the user to "Get a cup of coffee".
Anyway, switch to Safe Mode and left the computer scanning with Spybot.
Is this the work of a virus or spyware?
I've been using IE6 very seldom these days (used it only when I want to access my Hotmail and School E-learning website. However, every time after I used IE, I've been noticing a registry change on the security settings of IE. NOTE: Before I used IE I have its Advanced settings in the Options window Restored to Default.
This is what Spybot had found:
Problem: Registry Change
The data of that particular registry is 0x00000001(1), but before the scan it was 0x00000000(0).
Do anyone knows how to fix the problems?
