    Spybot S&D

    I have just finished running Spybot S&D on my computer. The only thing found was:
    Microsoft.WindowsSecurityCenter.RegistryTools which I had the program remove.
    I can find nothing at Microsoft about this. Spybot has it listed under security updates for 4 october 2007. I am interested to find out what the above is - harmful or harmless?
    Thank you for any answers in advance.

    This entry is mostly informative - it means that a setting in the Security Center control panel has been changed from the default. It is possible that this was done by malware, but it is more probable that it is the effect of installing other security software. Norton AntiVirus, for example, turns off some of the built-in Windows security because it would conflict with its own operation. If this is the case, the entry will be detected each time you run a scan with Spybot S&D. You can tell it to ignore it (there's an option in the right-click menu).
