    Folks: I'm not computer saavy so please bear with me...

    I am typing this from a Dell Inspiron 2600 laptop that was full of pop ups and auto porn dial ups (the laptop was given to me by a friend). It was so infected that it eventually required that the installation software be reinstalled. My husband is a professor at a local university and brought the laptop to the IT department; they cleaned up the whole computer, reinstalled the original software, and basically saved me and the computer! However, when I run Spybot (which is every time I turn on the computer) and I select “Search and Destroy”, it always comes up with “DSO Exploit – 5 entries”. When I select “fix” a popup appears stating “creating system restore points”, then asks “remove deleted entries”, which I then select “yes”. It comes back with a popup stating “5 problems fixed”, and I then select “ok”. When I select “immunize” it comes back stating “all known bad products are already blocked”. If I leave Spybot and go back into Spybot without even opening another program or go online, the same problem of “DSO Exploit – 5 entries” comes up again! I’ve learned the hard way that if the computer goes to standby without running Spybot and deleting this, forget shutting down – it refuses to go through the normal shutdown process and the computer won’t turn off, even manually, until the battery runs out. Of course, as soon as I turn it on again, I immediately run Spybot and find the same message, once again. Not only is this driving me crazy, but I feel like it’s beat-the-clock as to how often I need to run Spybot while I’m using the computer. Can anyone out there help with this problem? A million thanks…Stephanie

    stephanieK, and welcome to Wilders. :)

    I am not seeing anything in your log that would indicate an infection.

    As for the DSO Exploit entries that Spybot S&D is alerting to, this is a small bug in the most recent build (1.3) of Spybot S&D, and hopefully will be fixed soon.

    Here is a thread that will better explain it:
