Hi and thanks for readin. My Girlfriend was streaming video and then she says this window popped up. It says it is a securtity Center Alert. Then it asks me if i want to block this suspicious software. The sofware in question is called Win32.Zafi.B. The description it gives is that it is a worm trojan program that records keystokes and takes screen shots. I feel that this is a bluff and plays off of fear. In the same window at the bottom there is three options to take. "Keep Blocking" "Unblock" and "enable protection" however the first two options are shadowed out in grey and the only option it allows is the enable protection. Kristin said she clicked the enable protection and it then directed it to this website that tells her to install this anti virus sofware that has is pretty convincing if ur not that smart. I have warned her before and this time she waited to ask me what to do. I then checked out the site and came to the conclusion that it is frued. So i then close the window that was the website. Then i close the window that was the Security Center Alert and think that is that. However the Security Center Alert has kept on popping every 5 minutes or so. I cant find the process in the task manager yet and would like some help with whatever this problem might be. I have a hijackthis log file i am going to post. Please help and you receive my thanks and gratitude.


OS: Windoxs XP home (5.1 build 2600)
AntiVirus: Norton 360
Firewall: Windows Firewall


if there is anyother further informaion u want me to post or find out i am most willing to do so. thanks again and i hope you have a happy happy day.
