I dont know what to say, i was always careful about stuff like this................

i downloaded trial software that i liked and once the trial went out i had to either buy the software of delete it.

my friend told me i could d/l the keygen and get the stuff to work for free (the software in question is worth few grand) and me being poor and wanting to get the stuff badly i followed ill advice and downloaded the keygen and on installation i knew something was wrong.

AVG 8 tried to warn me but my friend told me its ok, all keygens register as Trojans but they arent, what a fool i am sometimes i think i deserve this.......

After downloading it AVG 8 caught more than a few of them but couldnt delete them all, i dont know why.

I got Zone Alarm Security Suite and that detected a lot of stuff that AVG must have overlooked and i set up a firewall for incoming and outgoing traffic. A day after i got a warning from both AVG and Zone Alarm that there was a TrojanDownloader.Zlob in the computer and right after that a lot of my .mp3 files and .WMA files were infected and had to be deleted

I heard that i had to go to the registry at REGEDIT and search for MSSMSGS folder and delete it cause that folder might be where the virus hides. Any thoughts about that one?

I went to msconfig to check it out and lo and behold that program (unknown source) was running and as soon as i stopped the application from running i didnt get much spyware caught and no more Virus warnings, that is until tonight. Zone Alarm caught one Trojan infected file (my adult video :thumbsup: ) and want a stop to this

help please

Hello Sanel30

I see that you have an HJT log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/165539/trojan-downloaderzlob/

We do not allow more than one topic for the same computer and the same issue as this causes confusion, and in this case may make the disinfection process more difficult.

This leaves you with a choice:

1) Have this thread reopened and the HiJack This log topic deleted


2) Keep this thread closed and wait for assistance in the HiJack This log forum. Please note that that forum is VERY busy.

Please send a Private Message indicating your choice.

Assuming you wish assistance in the HiJack This forum, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
