Running XP Home. VirusScan, SpySubtract, CWShredder,AdAware & SpywareDoctor all come up "clean". However, Spybot detects "DSO Exploit - 5 Entries" and "WebDialer - 4 Entries". Spybot "removes" the DSO Exploit entries, but cannot remove WebDialer (suggests problem may be corrected on restart). However, if Spybot is allowed to run at next start-up, both DSO Exploit and WebDialer are again found.
Spybot detail shows "DSO Exploit: Data source object exploit (Registry change, fixed)" after "repair" and "WebDialer: RAS profile (Registry key, fixing failed)."

The indicated registry entries are:
DSO Exploit: "HKEY_USERS\S=1=5=19\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\InternetSettings\Zones\0\1004!=W=3"
WebDialer: "HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\RemoteAccess\Profile\eConnect" and "HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\RemoteAccess\Profile\eConnect" and "HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\RemoteAccess\Profile\OnlineDialer" and "HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\RemoteAccess\Profile\OnlineDialer".

Do I need to worry about removing these at all? If so, how do I get rid of them?

Problem 1 DSO Exploits, please read:

Problem 2 The Online dialer

Copy the bold part below into notepad and save it as dialerbgone.reg

Doubleclick the file you made and confirm you want to merge it with the registry.





Then reboot and do another scan.
