    Just installed a brand spanking new hard drive. Thought it was all
    clean. Ran Spybot for the first time and got the following:

    DSO: Data source object exploit
    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\INternet
    Settings\Zones\0\1004+W=3

    Five of these items were identified along with two items related to
    Windows Media Player. This was a brand new install of Windows XPHome.
    Spybot "fixed" these problems. Was it correct to do so?

    Thanks

    It's due to an MS/IE exploit.
