Why is Spybot reporting RegistryFix.exe as a threat? I removed it, but
I would now like to learn more about it please. I gather it arises
from a free registry repairing utility I installed (on recommendation)
last week, called RegCure, but can't be sure.

BTW, am I mistaken, or does Spybot not offer the option of studying
*details* of its results? A single word 'RegistryFix.exe' doesn't tell
you much. In some other programs I recall being able to read details
of the entries.

Unless it's changed in recent versons, you can click on any item it
reports to see exactly what file/registryentry/etc it thinks is bad.
I can't offhand recall if it tells you /why/ it thinks it's bad.

Thanks, I'll look harder at end of next run.
