DSO Exploit ???

Hi,

I ran Spybot earlier and got message that my machine (XP home) had
DSO Exploit (5 entries), so I selected to fix it .... but ....
after running the scan again its still there. I even tried updating S&D, and searching with adaware but not getting anything this way.

I did a search on google, and got nowhere - so just wondering if anyone here knows what it is, if it is v. bad and how to fix it?

thanks.

Thanks for looking into this for me, Windows is updated regularly, I think I'll put SP2 on tomorrow, as Ive not seen anything bad on my other setup which is fairly similar - so thats a relief.
