Registry antivirus overide

  romford 17:19 17 Apr 06

I just ran spybot and it found HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\AntiVirusOverride!=dword:0 but spybot cant delete it. Does this mean my AV has been hacked? Greatly appreciate info.

It means the XP `antivirus not installed` warning in Service Center has been disabled; normal if you have antivirus software not `officially` recognised by Security Centre.

sorry, I meant `Security Centre` both times

This is the normal setting for the Security Centre with Anti virus monitoring switched on. click here

  remind 17:26 17 Apr 06

Sorry, my mistake.

  remind 17:30 17 Apr 06

On the other hand click here
My AV monitoring is on (AVG) and that value is 1.
When you click `I have AV software that I will monitor myself` the value changes to 0.
