    Tonight, immediately after doing a definition update on spybot and immunizing, a window from anti-spy came up to ask if I wanted to allow hypermart.net to my trusted zones. This was while spybots page was still on my screen. Any connection between the definition download and the msas question?

    Hypermart.net followed Spybot S&D on 20 January

    I Ran Spybot-Search & Destroy download of new Definitions
    on 20 January ,and immediately after completing, I received an Alert from my Microsoft AntiSpyware that "Hypermart.net" required approval to enter my trusted zone.

    So I immediately went over to my other XP computer and the Exact Same scenario occurred

    Strange don't you think?

    I just noticed your post.
    I also posted , but only a couple of minutes ago,
    the exact same strange occurrence on both my XP computers within the last hour.

    Hope you don't mind but I have now merged both threads.

    This particular problem has been going on for awhile and even tho the URL varies the ultimate False alert from MSAS is still a known issue by Microsoft.

    You may receive an "Internet Explorer trusted site requires approval" message from Windows AntiSpyware (Beta) if you also use the Immunize feature in Spybot Search & Destroy

    I did not let it into the trusted zones. Now I have read the microsoft article you showed how do I put it in the trusted zone as I ticked always remember this action?

    Without assuming wrongly....does that imply you also Immunized after the latest update ?

    I chose "safer networking 1" as my download site, could this be something in common?

    Hi,
    I downloaded from SN 1. Besides, the file should be the same, regardless of the download location.
