i started getting shortcuts to different websites on my desktop, and even though i deleted them, they came right back instantly.

i googled and dl'ed a program called 'spybot- search and destroy', ran it, and it found a lot of various things, got rid of them.

but then one thing kept coming back, called 'zlob' something.

i googled some more, and dl'ed a program called 'fixwareout', ran it, and now the zlob is gone and hasnt come back.

but now 'fakealert.cc' comes up everytime, even after being deleted.

i downloaded hijackthis because i see it referred to a lot, but i dont know what to do with it.

thanks for any help, i have no idea where to start and what to do to get my system back to how it was before all of this started.

may we have some more information from you?

which windows version are you running and what protection programs do you have on board; when were they all last fully updated and run on full system scans?

as you may see the HJT forums are somewhat busy so if we can keep you OUT of there it is better and the team can maybe help you on this section ?

It might not be a bad idea to post that kasp log

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

can you tell us from where and why you downloaded the 'fixwareout'as the only references google has to offer are from within HJT logs

also; I F I read this right you have NO antivirus program installed on the computer............

if so really you do NOT have ANY 'warning' system ON the computer to alert you TO possible infections let alone clean you from them

you will be aware that spybot is NOT an antivirus program ?

I SUGGEST you run an on line scan from Trend

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/uk/

to see what IT locates;

IF you ARE right in that you ahve NO installed antivirus program ??you NEED to get ONE antivirus program installed on there

I suggest either avast

http://www.avast.com/eng/avast_4_home.html

or avg7.5


http://www.oldapps.com/AVG_antivirus.php

choose ONE of them to install as your MAIN program ; once installed FULLY update the definitions, reboot your computer and run a FULL computer scan with it

let us know what those scans produce


and as you are on XP do you have service pack 2 installed and all your necessary windows updates from the update site?

i dl'ed avast, ran it a thorough scan on my computer and it moved 4 things to the chest. i cant paste the scan results because they were posted on a table. i tried to copy and paste but it didnt work.

ill do a screen print when i get the chance.

so since i ran a scan and the program moved those 4 things to its chest, is my computer safe now?
