This keeps coming up when I do a scan for spywear, what is it for and is it bad? If so how do I get it out?

The short answer: it's a bug in Internet Explorer that could, under certain circumstances, allow untrusted software to run - in other words, a vulnerability. The good news is that it's been fixed.


Here is where I got that information from: http://ask-leo.com/w..._rid_of_it.html

If you do a search on google you can find more information about what it is.

as already noted, this is an exploit that --assuming you have the latest Internet explorer and all updates-- is really a false positive, meaning Spybot reports it, but it is not there.

If you simply want to stop seeing the message, here are some instructions for removing the setting that causes it to appear:
