    o_O My system recently picked up DSO Exploit. I am having trouble getting rid of it. Does anybody have any suggestions. I currently use Spy Bot and Ad-aware as well as Spyware Guard.

    Thanks

    It's a vulnerability, not spyware. Go to the Wilders Free Tools page and download DSOStop, a patch which will fix this. (If you have a newer OS, you might want to keep it around so you can uninstall it, in case of the unlikely event that MS releases a patch...)
