My trial version of SpyHunter has found Zlob.* problems such as:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMag\EscDomains\...

MY QUESTION: Why doesn't Malwaretypes, Kaspersky, or SuperAntiSpy find these? Is SpyHunter falsely reporting these trojans? What's happening? Do I need to buy their software to fix these problems?

Thanks from Chi-town

Hello supertunia and welcome,

The tool spyhunter was originally a rogue anti spyware product but has been recently de-listed while being de-listed is a good thing, you have to wonder about why the program was there in the first place. In spyhunter's case this was due to poor performance, and aggressive techniques. http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti-spyware.htm

You might want to consider using a different antispyware program

Just to make sure your system is clean, you should follow the Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log
