Spybot can not fix DSO exploit on Windows XP SP2

Windows xp SP2.

Run Spybot 1.3 , it found DSO Exploits (2 entries) .. I click Fix selected problem ... close spybot, restart, run spybot.. found same DSO exploit key again. Spybot always found it again and again.

System Restore is OFF. Have tried run spybot on Safe Mode.

It has something in the registry internet zone...

Question is, it it safe to remove it manually (from regedit) or just leave that dso exploit alone?

Thank You

The DSO Exploits is a known false alarm with Spybot, that apparently hasn't been corrected yet.

You can set Spybot to ignore this detection for now.

Why spybot can not remove it or why it always cameback after restart (with system restore OFF)

By the way I did Ignore and start system restore back.

Thank You

Its content a few *.zip files... If I'm not mistaken the file name is the name of some spyware or adware, such as goldenpalacecasino.zip, coolwebsearch.zip, alexa related.zip, dsoexploit.zip.

I also run CWSshredder for the coolwebsearch... is it enough?

Probably it created a couple months ago...

Thank you

, and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

Press that, save the log as a .txt file, and copy and paste its contents into your next post in one of the mentioned forums.

Most of what it lists will be harmless, so do not fix anything yet.
