DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

Tech Support Pits column from Dear Webby's Humor Letter of
09/01/04: DSO Exploit

Tech Support Pits:
From Klaus=== Dear Webby I also enjoy your humour immensely and vote. I have been running Spybot for some time now and it seems to be doing a good job. However, everytime I run spybot, it shows 'DSO Exploit' as a problem. When I ask spybot to eliminate it, it does. But it reappears even if I run spybot immediately again. Would you comment please. Thanks Klaus Dear Klaus Don't worry about the DSO Exploit. It's a couple of bugs, but harmless. 1) Spybot fixes a Windows bug regarding unsigned Active X. 2) Windows update now fixes it too, but differently. You can either ignore it, or fix it in the registry. Write a plain text file with NoteMaid or any clean text editor and save it as FIXDSO.REG If your editor hangs ".txt" onto the end of it, just rename it to FIXDSO.REG Into the file, paste what I have between the lines: =========================================== REGEDIT4 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0] "1004"=dword:00000003 =========================================== Save that to some place where you can find it easily, then doubleclick it. That will patch the Windows bug associated with "Download unsigned ActiveX controls". Have FUN! DearWebby
