Hi, All!

My first post!

I ran Ad-AwareSE and it found 34 objects, with 33 posing no threat. However, the other Critical Object was RegData. Upon further investigation I found that the vendor was Microsoft.

*******
Windows Object Recognized!
Type : RegData
Data :
Category : Vulnerability
Comment : Manual changing of browser start-page restricted

*******

Can somebody please explain this to me.

I don't care if I can't change the browser setting. I went through a period of time where I was infested with CWW. This happened, I believe, last summer. Why was it just found?

What is the proper course of action in this case?

Thanks in advance,

Do you have Microsoft AntiSpyware installed?

Thats good. I think this is a false positive. MSAS restricts changes to your registry unless approved so "Manual changing of browser start-page restricted" is a good thing. This is an example of a "conflict" between two scanners. AdAware sees the fact that MSAS restricts home page changes as a problem but in actual fact it is supposed to work that way.
