hi.. erm im nanaBanana.. and i know i have viruses on my comp

and i know how i got them too.

ppl were talking about adult sites at school and i was curious..

so i googled it and i think it was porn tube that came up and i clicked on it

and like two seconds later i was infected..

and the thing is my norton antivirus thing had not been renewed so i guess thats probably why it wasnt removed.

but this virus has slowed my computer down considerably.. (im using a laptop)

so i googled it again..

and i tried SDFix until i found out it was incompatible with vista

so it didnt work

so i downloaded and paid for PCtools

and i renewed my norton

and i downloaded the free version of AdAware i think

and recently i paid for SpyHunter 3

i just want this virus gone really badly

i have never looked up porn and after this i m pretty certain i never will

so i didnt know what virus it was until i downloaded spyhunter and ran a scan..

and it told me ihad zlob.trojan so i removed it

but i know that its not completely gone..

there are still remnants of it

i just ran a scan

and i think i have adware and malware and i have tracking cookies too

please help me =)

thanks alot..

Hi NanaBanana,

Let's see if we can sort this out for you then.

Step 1
Follow the instructions in this link:
How To Remove The Smitfraud / Generic Zlob
To run SmitFraudFix on Vista:
Run SmitfraudFix.exe (not the .cmd from the .zip archive) by Right Clickin', Run As Admin

Step 2
Download SUPERAntiSypware Free for Home Users
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download and unzip them from here.)
  • Under "Configuration and Preferences", click the Preferences button.
  • Click the Scanning Control tab.
  • Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):[list]
  • Close browsers before scanning.
  • Scan for tracking cookies.
  • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen.
    Now close down SuperAntiSpyware.
Do Not do a scan yet.

Please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :

* Restart your computer
* After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
* Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
* Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, (you will have to use the 'arrow' keys to navigate on this window) then press "Enter".
* Choose your usual account.

Scan with SuperAntiSpyware
Click the desktop icon.......when it starts, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan.
  • Click "Next" to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your computer.
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes".
See if this helps, if not.... come back and we'll try something else.

Hello, you may find that the SmitFraud won't run in Vista also so you can also scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware,be sure to "Run as Administrator".

Download and save it to your desktop.
Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application and do not make any changes to default settings.
After install leave both these checked,
Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
Select.,Perform Quick Scan and then click on the Scan button.
After scan click the OK radio button in the 'Scan Completed' popup box.
Now click on the Show Results button.
Be sure everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
The log of the scan can be found by clicking the Logs tab.
Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply.

Hi boopme

You made me check this out :thumbsup:
Asked SiRi about this.... this was the reply.

SmitfraudFix Works on Vista, it doen't remove sysmail.dll anymore.
Run SmitfraudFix.exe (not the .cmd from the .zip archive) by Right Clickin', Run As Admin.


I've editted these instructions into my previous post.
