    I just formated and reinstalled XP SP2 last night and did an Ad Aware scan today. One of the objects that came up was:

    Windows - RegData - Vulnerability - HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT:regfile\shell\open...

    What should I do with this? Set it to "Ignore"...Or remove it? I somehow don't think the latter is a good idea.

    I dont remember it coming up before I formatted, but I have just installed SP2 and no other updates and security fixes.

    Updated from MS site.

    I found this on the AdAware forum:

    "According to the log that was posted, Ad-Aware has discovered a missing string value within the registry. Where the string should have contained the value "regedit.exe" "%1", it was actually blank. However, Ad-Aware recognised this and replaced the missing value.

    Nothing to worry about here - in fact, what was identified as a general windows security issue has been resolved by the scan that was carried out!"

    It's still being displayed when I do a scan though, oh well...I put it on the ignore list.
