I'm sorry but that is only the name of the detection. It would be helpful to see the entire detection including the registry entry being examined. Please post a log of the actual detection the user is getting.

To do that:
Run another scan.
When the scan completes, right click on the results list and select "Copy results to clipboard".
Then paste (Ctrl+V) those results to a new post in this thread.

The default setting for the following registry entry became "iexplore.exe"=dword:00000001 with the introduction of Windows XP Service Pack 2.

Spybot's detection indicates that the registry entry "!=W=1" (where "!=" is not equal and "W=1" is dword:00000001). In other words the value not set to the default value.

There is an explanation (relatively technical) of FEATURE_LOCALMACHINE_LOCKDOWN in the following:
Compatibility in Internet Explorer 6 for Windows XP Service Pack 2
The bottom line is, if you did not intentionally change the default for some reason such as the following, I suggest that fix the problem:
Pictures do not appear as expected, or you receive an error message when you open an HTML file on a Windows XP Service Pack 2-based computer
