When I access certain websites I get a popup dialogue box which states:

Registry change allowed. identified as user white list.

Resident allowed change of

FOD4B239 - DA4B - 4DAF - 81E4 - DFEE4931A4AA

Category user. user specified browser toolbar base on your white list.

I hope I have managed to get all that info as the dialogue box keeps disappearing!

I have a feeling that this is linked somehow to one of my Anti-spyware programes; that I have clicked on an "Allow" box when it would have been better not to have done so.

Any advice you can offer will be gratefully received!
My thanks

I use Spybot but I do not allow it to monitor my registry changes, since such happen frequently (particularly when updating) and I don't consider that useful info for myself. It might be useful for others.

I'd suggest opening each of the programs listed above and searching for a white list entry for the Ask toolbar (which is what FOD4B239 - DA4B - 4DAF - 81E4 - DFEE4931A4AA seems to be used for).

I'm not familiar with the message tho', so you may want to wait for others to post here.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
