    Hello, I have a little problem here. For long time ago I downloaded Spybot Search & Destroy. It was okey for some time but then it started to find things like these.

    Microsoft.Windows Security Center.Antivirus Override

    or


    Windows Security Center.Antivirus Override

    They are located in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SecurityCenter\AntivirusOverride!=dword:0

    It is only in the first scan when I turn on my computer. Second scan don't found nothing. If I close my computer and open it and scan then it is again there. Their not in the same time.

    Is this a problem. Should I be worried. Please help.

    The AntivirusOverride entry Spybot is informing you about relates to the selection....I have an antivirus program that I'll monitor myself. You can see that by going to Start\Control Panel\Security Center....look at the right hand side of the window and check the setting under Virus Protection(expanding if necessary). If you click Recommendations....You should see....I have an antivirus program that I'll monitor myself.

    That setting means Windows will not monitor your virus protection status and won't send you alerts if it is out of date or off.

    From Spybot FAQ---> Why does Spybot-S&D flag changes in the Windows Security Center ?
