Hello all, I've got a DSO that adaware thinks is gone and spybot can still see but can't get rid of. I ran hijack this and msconfg.exe is the only app. I don't remember ever seeing (it's startup as well!!), here is my log:

Reggie,
There is a bug in Spybot. Just ignore those DSO Exploits, and hopefully an update to fix the problem will come out soon.

Reggie,
Those two msconfg entries can be fixed if you download version 1.98.
Download HijackThis to its own permanent folder.
http://www.spywarein.../HijackThis.exe
If that link is not working, extract from http://www.downloads.../hijackthis.zip
To create a folder:
Click My Computer, then C:\
In the menu bar, File->New->Folder.
That will create a folder named "New Folder", which you can rename to "HJT" or "HijackThis".
Now you have C:\HJT\ folder.
Double-click on the .exe to scan.
Make sure ALL other windows and browser closed.
Have HJT FIX these:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Microsoft Update] msconfg.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Microsoft Update] msconfg.exe

Empty your Temporary Internet Files and history in Internet Options. And clean out your
%Userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp
folder. It's a good idea to do that regularly.

(Using XP, you must be logged in as Administrator to do this.)

Go to Start>Run and type msconfig Press enter.
When msconfig opens, click the Launch System Restore Button.
On the next page, click the System Restore Settings Link on the left.
Check the box labeled Turn Off System Restore.

Reboot. Go back in and turn System Restore ON. A new Restore Point will be created.

That should do it. :D
