Hi pdoriley,

It's very common that Spybot S&D keeps finding DSO exploids, please see this page:
http://www.computing.net/windowsxp/wwwboard/forum/104837.html

From responce no. 10:
Since the injected <object> runs in the "My Computer" Zone changing the Internet Zone's settings didn't affect it, but changing the correct zone's settings will prevent this exploit from running.

Here is the registry information:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0

Change the value of "1004" (DWORD) to 3.

Greetings,

LucF

It's a known bug in Spybot S&D.

It's expected to be solved in the next release. Meanwhile, just ignore it.

Thank you.

Latest news on this:

>>Please note the current beta release of the application (v 1.3.1b) corrects the DSO bug. If you are not comfortable with installing the beta ignore the DSO items until the final is released. Again, please note it is an application update and not an includes update that fixes this bug<<
