The Beta Spyware goes to default page instead of detail page on threats. The
spyware program did delete a trojan but when I asked for detail it simply
went to the page to download the beta spyware. I also changed my default
browser page from dellnet to northwestern and the beta reports it as a hijack
attempt. How do I tell it that it is ok as I authorized the change?

Thanks,

Leo
