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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
