View Full Version : Spybot / DSO entries

09-04-2004, 05:26 PM
Every time I run Spybot, it discovers five DSO exploit entries. I remove them, but if I restart the computer and immediately run Spybot, it finds those same five entries again. Is this normal? I'm thinking these entries might be allowing other Spyware software to obtain access to my computer. I run a firewall, but I still get Spyware. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks.

The answer to you problem seems to be to first make sure you have all critical updates installed on your computer and then do the following:

Instead of telling Spybot to ignore the DSO exploit, use the information Spybot gives you and get rid of it.

Disconnect your internet, reboot your computer (you don't have to go into safemode to do this just boot normally), run Spybot. Go into the registry by going to the start menu then run, type in the word regedit and hit the OK button. Now locate one by one all the registy entries that Spybot said it found the DSO exploit in. Rename the 1004 files to 1003 then exit regedit. Shut down your computer. Plug your computer back into the internet, and restart your computer. Run Spybot again and you will see it is no longer there. Congratulations it gone. pretty simple huh?
