    When I ran adware the log has this following entry:
    Windows Object recognized!
    Type : RegData
    Data :
    Rootkey : HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    Object : Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions
    Value : NoBrowserOptions
    Data :


    Registry scan result :
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    New objects : 1
    Objects found so far: 1


    This showed up as a "vulnarability" to be fixed.

    Should I fix it or should I leave it alone? (I also have spybot and spywareblaster installed. I did not do anything because I thought this change to the registry may have been placed by one of these programs.

    Can you pls advise?

    Thks

    Hi Arun,

    You probably have set that option yourself in Spybot S&D under Immunize or SpywareBlaster under Tools > Misc. IE settings . It is only usefull if you are not the only user of that computer and don't want others to change your settings.
    So, as always, the choice in yours.

    Regards,

    Pieter
