Re: Spybot say REGFIX.EXE is a threat - why?

"Newsgroup. A particular group within the Usenet. In October 2000, there
were more than 100,000 newsgroups. Each newsgroup is named according to a
hierarchical convention. Categories such as "rec," "comp," or "misc"
identify the general subject of the newsgroup. Additional terms are
sometimes added, uniquely defining the newsgroup within a collection of
others. Examples: comp.lang.perl.misc, rec.pets.cats,
