hey all - i was just doing a Spybot scan, and it kicked up two registry entries that are apparently settings to perhaps allow the XP security center to override the antivirus program.. does it actually do this, and why? (these reg. entries are new. I scan every week, and this is the first time I've seen them).
I've got it set to Don't monitor, I'll manage my antivirus manually in the XP sec. center., which might be why they're set to 0 at the moment.

--- Spybot - Search & Destroy version: 1.4  (build: 20050523) ---

Windows Security Center.AntiVirusOverride: Settings (Registry change, fixed)
  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\AntiVirusOverride!=dword:0

Windows Security Center.AntiVirusDisableNotify: Settings (Registry change, fixed)
  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\AntiVirusDisableNotify!=dword:0
