Running Windows XP, Mozilla Firefox browser, Spybot S&D, and have gone through all the help advice given in the forums ( before you post try this ) including Trend Micro scan, Panda and bit defender, then got Adware, then got Mcfee Stinger and CClean, everything on that page that advised me to do. I do not have an antivirus program and the only firewall I have is the windows security, but it probably is on low risk setting to be honest. I update Spybot often and windows security as well. I have been able to remove a number of things that were also a problem, but that Zlock.uc keeps coming back. What it does is pull up a ad in the lower right corner of my screen that states that my connection is slow and I need to click on the product in the ad to download a program that will fix my slow connection. I am impressed that I have been able to disinfect my system from the other garbage I had on there but this will not go away. I suspect this infection came to my system while my nephew was here using the computer. Any help would be great.
