    Not so much a problem as an annoyance - now I have the new Spybot S&D on guard in my tray it will point out a known threat on any news item I pick up on here.... (TargetNet) Just thought I would mention it - kinda ironic, huh? :p

    I've not had any problems, in fact it has picked up a few significant things already!

    Yeah, I've gotten the same thing as well, from the latest Spybot. I guess this site is infecting us all! :p

    errr... how come you guys are picking these things up? I'm using the latest update for it and I don't see anything pop up saying it's found something.
    hm.. If this thing you're talking about is some sort of web bug, then I guess McAfee Internet Security has picked it up and blocked it before Spybot could do anything. :p

    LOL I would assume it is just missing everything altogether.
