Spybot 'find' - registry key change?

My last run of Spybot flagged this up as a change to 'w=0'

Microsoft.Windows.Security.InternetExplorer: Settings (Registry change, nothing done)
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-******\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_LOCALMACHINE_LOCKDOWN\i explore.exe!=W=1

I checked the info and I found none of the associated signature files. The lates run shows as above. Should I be concerned? Google offers little help.

WinXP SP2 and AVG ZoneAlarm

I have no clue what that bit does, but in the same location in my laptop (the only PC around up here in wild wooly windy wuwal Norfolk) I have in HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-725345543-854245398-1708537768-1003\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_LOCALMACHINE_LOCKDOWN

(Default) REG_SZ with (Data) (Value not set)
and tabbed under that

(Default) REG_SZ with (Data) (Value not set)

A few lines further on is more interesting - it's
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-725345543-854245398-1708537768-1003\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\PhishingFilter

Dunno if that's any help.

Thanks Keef - I think I'll ignore it and see if it goes away
