Avoid installing those types of programs if at all possible. Good thing I have Spybot! This exploit is a bug in Internet Explorer that under certain circumstances would allow untrusted software to run on the computer. I think there is a trial version of ad muncher available.

it has "Gator" and a Keylogger in it. I stupidly installed it, even though I always manually go to the windowsupdate page, and since then i've been getting the popups. I don't know. This seems related to an 'automatic update' from microsoft which popped up this week for KB833989.

Ask Leo! Using Spybot Search & Destroy look for the DSO Exploit and then: First, the this DSO Exploit Fix. Any error messages? I tryed every thing I could, and could not get it off my PC.

There are ways to force the report to go away, but it's more trouble than it's worth.
