So, everything that I've read online suggests that I download different antiviral applications. One problem, I can't even get online nor can I get into the control panel to delete this SOB. Any advise? :thumbsup:

If you use a router, disconnect from the internet, reset the router, and give it a strong password.
If you have a thumbdrive or a CD burner available you can download Malwarebytes to that and run it on the infected machine

So I do have a wireless router, however, it's a company router. Will I still have the ability to give it a password? As for having a CD burner or thumb drive, will that require me to download it from another computer and then insert either the CD or thumb drive into my computer? I do have a laptop, however, it to is a company lap top, so I don't know if I'll be able to download anything onto it. One more thing, this VirusResponse Lab 2009 has my computer running REALLY slow, almost to the point that I can't open any applications when my computer reboots.

Mark? Thank you for the suggestion about Malwarebyte.

So, I was able to get rid of VirusResponse Lab 2009 (i think?). It's not popping up and I don't see it in the add/remove files. Therefore, I'm assuming it's gone. Now my problem is that my computer is running VERY slow, to the point that I can't open up any applicaitons nor can I get online. Any suggestions?

Could you post the scan log so we can see whay was found please.
The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply

I'm looking under the tab "Logs" in Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and there is nothing there? Does this mean that I still have the virus? Do I need to open my registery and start deleting files that way?

Hello Zlob....updated MBAM, AVG 8.0, and AdAware 2008 all have integrated Zlob/Zotob removal tools, but Zlob is one of those really nasty bugs that bites more than just software.

Zlob is part of the WIN32 Trojan Downloader family of malware, and it is currently the Anti-Malware world's Public Enemy #1

Zlob Trojan @ Wikipedia

Zlob Trojan @ Symantec

Alias Zotob Worm @ Symantec

Zlob Trojans overview @ Lavasoft

Evolution of Zlob article @ TrendMicro

Zlob @ Sophos

Alias Zotob @ Wikipedia


Excerpt:

Zlob seems to be the bug driving this trend, and as Trojans go, it's fairly well-rounded. Zlob functions as both keylogger and backdoor, and can relay sensitive data while simultaneously providing full system access to its botnet masters. SecureComputing notes that these sort of spyware families are responsible for much of the recent botnet growth, especially when combined with the increasing prevalence of rootkits as part of a malware package.
