After visiting a website running a Flash file earlier, my Firefox browser crashed and not long after that my ZoneAlarm firewall started prompting for permission for Services and controller app to run (services.exe).
I temporarily denied access, and shortly after Avast reported as suspected virus pattern by c:\windows\system32\drivers\zxalsz.sys
Googling it didn't return much results, but as I went and check the folder, I discovered 3 more additional files were also created at the same time :-
From there I found that these files appear a lot in cases in of browser hijack malware's and I was trying to find a cleaner or quick solution to remove it, but so far after full virus scan with Avast, and malware scan with Ad-Aware did not seem to solve the problem.
I noticed some of the similar problems was fixed here using ComboFix, but as its highly advised not to run ComboFix without the guidance of a helper here, I figured it would be much safer to post here to request for further assistance first.
So far the only symptoms I noticed is my PC slowing down, and the file zxalsz.sys keeps updating every minute, my firewall still blocks the Services and controller app request to access the Internet.
