PC Tools Spyware Doctor has been throwing out "Trojan.Agent.HT" when I run a complete scan. When it removes the "Trojan.Agent.HT" it also removes the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore, DisableSR (I'm running Windows XP Professional)

Interestingly, none of the other anti-spyware programs detect this "Trojan.Agent.HT" as I regularly run SuperAntiSpyware, SpyBot S&D, Ad-Aware SE Plus as well! I've managed to fix the registry problem by running ComboFix but this problem recurs after about a week or so & I have to go through the same route via ComboFix. I'd really welcome any suggestions to resolve this.

I'd say it's probably a problem with Spyware Doctor. I've never used it myself, but one of the reviews I read stated that it suffers from a high number of false positive results.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
