For the first time ever i think i have a massive Zlob infection. I run AVG, AdAware Anniversary, Spybot and i back these up by running SuperantiSpyware, Malwarebytes and AdvanceSystemCare. I also use CCleaner and TweakNow. I run all of these programs regularly.
I started having trouble with my Win XP machine a couple of weeks ago, slowing down,sometimes it took ages to get anything done, every time i checked task manager my cpu seemed to be always (almost) at 100%. Even though ALL of my tools reported a clean machine, i decided to download Spyware Hunter (scan only) and it reported 256 instances of zlob.trojan, zlob.videoaccess and a few others. At first i thought this might be a marketing ploy, but last night my home page was changed and then i knew it was for real.
Today i ran all of the above in safe mode including a program called RogueFix. Adware removed several bogeys that were of severe intensity and required restart.
Spyhunter reports that i am still infected.
I am at my wits end, all of my work is on this machine, i hope somebody can help me
