I brought this issue to Webroot's attention over a week ago but never heard any response. If anyone has any input, it would be appreciated.

I am running Windows XP Pro SP2 with all the latest updates. I use Microsoft Money 2005. I recently updated to Webroot's Spy Sweeper v4.5.

Anytime I start Microsoft Money 2005, I recieve the following message:

"Spy Sweeper has detected that C:\PROGRAM FILES\MICROSOFT MONEY 2005\MNYCOREFILES\MSMONEY.EXE is attempting to change your Internet Explorer settings for this web site:

//@[email protected]

For your security, it is recommended that you do not allow this change.

Do you want to prevent C:\PROGRAM FILES...MSMONEY.EXE from modifying your Internet Explorer Security settings?"

Once in a while, I'll get the same message, but with "//@[email protected]" instead, but usually it's with "//@[email protected]".

I've been using MSMoney05 since it came out. This issue only started since I've upgraded from Spy Sweeper v4.0 to v4.5 about a week ago.

Everytime this appears, I click for it to prevent the change and I tell it to remember that setting, yet it keeps appearing everytime I start MSMoney. I even tried clicking for it to allow the change, but I still get the message upon the next start up.

I don't seem to have lost any functionality in MSMoney, but it's really annoying to get this message every time I start the program.

Thanks for any help,
