Windows XP Home SP3

I found this list of hundreds of domain names, some of which are of dubious origin:
hkey_current_user/microsoft/windows/current version/internet settings/zonemap/domains/...

I see it also exists in hkey_users and hkey_local_machine too. What are these for, and can any of them be deleted?

Thanks
Rusty

Hi, Rusty :thumbsup:.

I checked those out earlier in the year...I believe it's a list of sites which are known malware troublespots.

It's my impression that it's populated by software such as Spybot S&D.

Thanks Louis, I should have searched. I use Spybot S&D(without teatimer) and Spyware Blaster.
