SpyBot S & D question

by hinesjrh / September 14, 2004 10:36 AM PDT

I often run SpyBot and Adaware on my PC, and yes I look for any updates often. Each time I run SpyBot it finds "WildTangent" and "DSO Exploit". This happens even if I have just run SpyBot and cleaned those two items off my PC, and then reboot and run SpyBot again - it finds those two items again. Why?

How do I permanently remove those two items from my PC???

The DSO issue is a known glitch with Spybot. It is reporting something which really doesnt exist.It is supposed to be fixed soon however you can ignore it or go to Settings\Ignore Products and check the DSO entry.Spybot will then stop reporting it!

As far as WildTangent is concerned you must have installed it. It is a program which lets you play certain games online and should be fairly easy to get rid of!

Good luck!
