This entry is not a new one. Looks like, that Spywareblaster has updated their immunize feature. We have fixed this entry. The fix will be available with the coming update.

Yesterday I allowed Spybot to remove this item. So far today it has not shown up. Maybe it is gone! Confused

If you check SpywareBlaster, you should find that there is 1 item with protection disabled.

If you re-enable that protection, it will return.

This item is apparently a conflict between Spybot and SpywareBlaster.

I had just discovered that unprotected setting in SpywareBlaster and enabled the protection. Did not know what that meant... thanks for clearing it up. I hope the little critter is gone for good. Happy

It's a false positive in Spybot. Just ignore it until the next update comes out.
