    Security Center AV

    Just ran Spybot S&D which reports a Registry Change: HKLMsoftwareMicrosoftSecurity CenterAntiVirusDisableNotify!=dword:0. The current value of dword is 1. I assume this has to do with a warning msg if my Norton AV is disabled. What is Spybot telling me here? Is it going to change the dword to zero, and will that notify me, or is it backwards? I'm confused.

    It's a false positive - see the thread starting at <post:=504,463>post 504,463</post:>. I added this one to my Ignore Single Entries list, and Windows Security Center.AntiVirusOverride as well.

    Howard,

    The way I read this is that MS Security Center is monitoring to insure that your AV product is on and up to date.

    SpyBot sees this as an attempt to disable this notification. In this case, a false positive. If you have MSSC set to NOT monitor the AV, the setting would be 1, therefore, I would think that you have this feature enabled if you see the setting as 0.

    I have SpyBot set to exclude this from it's searches.

    Hans beat me to this by 5 seconds. I'm just a slow, inaccurate typist.

    Actually, Viking types at a speed near that of light, so time passes 60 times as slow for him... <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>
