Dogdy Reg lines visable in regedit

Hi all,

I have been detecting a few dogdy adds in my registry
Actually did a search for a different regline in start run regedit but i came up to several others with a almost similar name..

Don t really understand this ,,,, I have reinstalled my laptop around 2 months ago***i m running regcleaner tools daily -cc cleaner
I have windows Security essentials running and updated*** i have quality malware applications running together with Mic Sec essentials
Also i have no applications installed that could case these registry lines to be there

Anybody any Suggestions as i tought my Pc was secured
Right now it feels like it isn t how can i keep my registry and my pc secure?

Thanks

I think we'd need some examples of these dodgy entries. It might help determine their origin. A Guy

Maybe you should be a bit more careful when surfing. That first one for instance seems to suggest you have been on a teen porn site, at least that's what I got when I checked the URL (plus an angry look from my wife who saw this site on my screen when she brought coffee for me...). Didn't test the others.

Seriously, you never know what these sites leave on your computer.

Kari

P.S: I removed the URL's from the quote, I suggest you do the same with your original post!

Lol on Kari...busted.

Those entries are zone information for Internet Explorer, and since it is HKEY_CURRENT_USER they are from you, as opposed to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\ which would be anyone using that machine. A Guy

Look in Internet Properties - Security. There are 4 Zones, with varying degree of trust:

Restricted (totally untrusted)
Internet (somewhere in between)
Trusted sites (somewhere in between)
Local intranet (totally trusted)

Products like anti-spyware (and maybe also AV and popup blockers) can populate the Restricted zone and slip in those keys into the registry, so when you surf to one of those domains (), the potentially malefic code provided by the crackers etc. will be ignored. The downside is the rich multimedia content provided by advertisers and other bright guys will also be missing...

Good call Danny, Spyware Blaster indeed, from my registry:



I haven't been surfing like that either These are restricted zone entries. A Guy
