Well, Grinler told me that if I would have trouble knowing whether or not to allow something when Spybot puts up a notification to post it if I wasn't sure---so, here's one....

value added
entry: vsoupd.dll
new data
rundll32.exe advpcack.dll,Register OCX: c:\PROGRAMS

well, if I read my writing correctly that's it....anyway....one time I clicked on something about rundll from Spybot and lost all of my files....this time I clicked on deny for that and didn't put remember this decision. Hope it makes sense. Thanks, noony

I think you did OK, noonytunes

It looks like some sorta advertisement package thing

I usually think:
"what am I doing at this precise time that might prompt a registry change?"

If the answer is "nothing" then it's a fair chance I just stopped some BS

It is a learning process, and no exact answer is good, but asking the question is always good. :thumbsup:
