Well I ran my usual antivirus/antimalware/antispyware scans as I always do earlier today. First I ran my antivirus program...nothing was detected. Then I ran Malwarebytes...nothing was detected. I also ran SuperAntiSpyware...nothing was detected there as well except for tracking cookies.

After those 3 scans came up clean, I decided to run an online virus/spyware scan on safety.live.com---which is provided by Microsoft. I run the Microsoft scan once a month. The scan detected some malware, even though none of this malware was detected in the aforementioned scans.

The online Microsoft scan detected EIGHT Exploit:Java/CVE-2008-5353 infections. The name of them are as follows:


Then this infection was detected: TrojanDownloader:Java/OpenConnection.CA

Finally, this was also detected: BrowserModifier:Win32/Zwangi

Even though I haven't noticed any changes to my system or browser, I feel that apparently my system must be infected somehow if the online Microsoft scan is detecting these infections.

What shall I do? How do I get rid of this???

EDIT: I took it upon myself to run the ESET Online Scan and it found and removed all of the infections I mentioned above except for the "BrowserModifier:Win32/Zwangi" infection. So now all I need help with is removing that particular infection.
