I know there is a post about this spyware, but my problem is a little different. This isn't changing my home page I don't really know if it's doing anything. I've gone to a number of websites concerning this spyware problem. I have ad aware I have spybot and an updated mcafee security and fire wall. I'm not very computer minded. Actually i'm pretty bad. Anyways I got help installing spybot two days ago. Alot of spyware ad aware wasn't able to clean off was on this. Probably at least 9 or 10. I was able to get rid of everything except DSO exploit. It says that it's been cleaned off, but it's not. On other websites it says this spyware is in windows and with a current updated security installation it's not dangerous. I guess this spyware has been around since 2002 and from the info I recieved Mircosoft made a patch back in 2002 to control it though it hasn't come off. Something to do with a code? Which Spybot can't read. I kep reading it's a bug in Spybot. Anyways I'm left worried wondering how I can just get this off forever. Understand I am not that computer knowledgable.

Thanks :D

No, the bug is that Spybot SD keeps fixing it over and over.

The exploit was a real vulnerability in Windows, but Spybot is currently misidentifying it.
