Hi,

I'm using Vista and run Nod32 all time, and clean up with Ad-Aware and Spybot every couple of days.

Spybot keeps finding Zlob.Downloader.bs but can't remove it, although it thinks it has.

I've trawled the net for hints on how to get rid of this. In safe mode I've run Spybot, Ad-Aware, SmitFraudFix and Ewido. But it keeps coming up in the Spybot scans when I reboot.

Not computer-savvy enough to know what to do next. Would really appreciate any help you can give.

Thankyou.

For reference, I ran spybot again and it says something about not being able to complete the cleaning action because of a blacklist. I may at some stage have blocked the registry change but I don't know how to access the list to change the action.

Think I've solved it. Managed to change the settings for the black list and delete the offending file. Ran spybot again and came up clean.

Hey nice work :thumbsup:
Now you should Set a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since System Restore is a protected directory, your tools can not access it to delete these bad files which sometimes can reinfect your system. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "OK".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
