I have been playing Planetside and it was running fine for the past 3 to 4 weeks. Somehow I got a Trojan called "Zlob.ABS, Zlob.VIF, Generic7.AVL." I managed to remove the virus (I am pretty sure I did) by downloading the Antivirus AVG. I also had 2 popups that were showing up. I also have Bitdefender. I ran them both to find the Trojan and it says it was removed. I deleted all my cookies, temporary internet files, defraged, did a disk repair, ran Adaware, Made sure my audio and video drivers were up to date. I also ran PCCillian several times. I removed Planetside and reinstalled it. The Pop-ups are gone. But when I go into Planetside, my game locks up about 2 minutes into the game. Usually, I can hit the windows key and go into task manager to see if the game is not responding, but with this I just have to do a hard boot to get out of it. I have checked to see if there is a problem by running dxdiag and it says there is no problem there. I have checked the Event Viewer to see if there was a log of something not loading but it also does not show anything there. I am not that good at diagnosing pc problems, but know just enough to be dangerous, lol. Hopefully someone can lead me in the right direction to trying figure out why this is happening now. I have just ran Hyjackthis, but it might as well be in a foreign language.
