  1. In my specific case I had Windows XP that previously had Spybot Search and Destroy but it had been removed prior to installing Kaspersky Internet Security 2013. Spybot S&D adds and apparently after uninstall, leaves a bunch of well delineated entries in the ..System32/drivers/etc/hosts file. When removed, which I did, Kaspersky no longer complains. Kaspersky product for the first time, flagged this file and these entries as a trojan. So I used Kaspersky to restore the file as hosts.orig and then edited it to remove the spybot-added entries, and then restored as hosts.xyz. Then deleted hosts and renamed hosts.xyx to hosts and rebooted system. Now if you are still running Spybot S&D then I would check the hundreds of entries for consistency and then tell kaspersky to restore hosts and then ignore this until Kaspersky resolves the issue.
  2. I too have run into this problem on Windows XP 32-bit Professional with SP3 using Internet Security 2013 product. I have never run apps from DVDVideoSoft on my system so the proposed solution is invalid in my case. Can Support please be more descriptive in-terms of what external component may be causing this error in-case there are other vendors who may be using that component. I have re-installed and even cleaned using Kaspersky AV removal tool to no avail. I have manually run update and verified that Kaspersky is up to date. Thanks, Stuart
