Spybot 1.4 found a bunch of entries in the following location:

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Internet
Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\meetyourfriend.biz\*!=W=4

where "meetyourfriend.biz" is only one of a long list keys varying only
by the website name.

How does one go about deleting these entries? Can entries in this area
be simply deleted, or is it more involved?

Any suggestions would be welcome. I'd like to get my resources back up
over 55%!

TIA

1. These entries are Restricted Zone entries put there by other anti-spyware
apps to limit what "bad" websites can do on your machine. They're *supposed*
to be there. Ignore Spybot's detection of these items.

2. Getting rid of these items will do nothing to improve your Resources
issue.

Let Spybot remove them to quarantine. If everything still works okay,
let Spybot delete them.
