    trojan.zlob help

    hey i was tricked into downloading a file to play a video on youtube

    i now have trojan.zlob, i keep getting pop ups directing me to download antivirus software. More annoyingly, on my task bar i constantly get an alert directing me to one of these websites.

    i was using norton internet security but that was unable to detect and deal with this trojan. so i uninstalled it and downloaded the latest version of sophos. i ran this but it did not detect the trojan.zlob. Instead it cleaned trojan-avv(something like that).

    I am still having the same problems. I am using vista. I dont know how to get rid of it

    Malwarebytes rocks, I also use Spybot, and combofix. You just have to run them in tandem, not all together. If you are any good with HiJackThis, it is a very good tool.

    This sounds like a precurser to AntivirusXP, I believe the smitfraudfix can detect an remove this you just need to run it in safe mode to be sure.
