First, let me say I'm not that good/ knowledgebale with computers.
My computer (Dell), is infected with "Zolob".
I know that...... because my Windows AntitiSpyware Beta1 detects it, but wont delete it.
Can anyone help me get rid of this "Zolob" virus, keeping in mind I dont know much about computers?
It would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi Jaemal!

Can you tell me what sort of protection you have on your system? Do you just have Windows AntitiSpyware? Trojan Hunter's defenition ruleset lists zolob so you may want to give it a try.

Here are setup and configuration instructions:

If the Zolob problem is not resolved, please post back and we can decide what to do next.

First, let me thank you for replying.
I dont think the trojan hunter program you suggested worked.
Yes, Microsoft Antispyware Beta 1 is my only protection on my computer.
I get this message detailing the problem everytime I run a scan.

(Zolob)
Registry Key/ Value
hkey_local_machine/software/microsoft/windows/current version/policies /explorer/ run nvctrl.exe
hkey_local_machine/software/microsoft/windows/current version/policies /explorer/ run winiet.dll
&
(Downloader.AE)
File Name -h91746.exe
File Path - C:/documents and Settings/Jamal/ Local Settings/ Temp h91746.exe/

And this message appears everytime I open IE
(Your system is under control of remote computer with IP address 227.4.167.118.
Spyware details:
stealthsws114.h!dll"ver.4.442as18a

Hi Jaemal!

You have something a bit more serious than Zolob and it needs attention; don't worry though, i'm sure it can be fixed. I have read your post and I think it would be wise for you to post a HijackThis log for an expert to review.

I recommend you follow the HijackThis preparation guide which can be found here. It is important that you follow the guide closely. A number of scans will be run which may well fix your problem.

As the guide says, after you have completed the scans that are recommended, please post your "HijackThis" log in a new topic in the forum found here. Please add your system infomation and also what problems you are having. Please be patient, and a HJT team member will help you to clean up your system

David

p.s. h91746.exe, winiet.dll and nvctrl.exe are all bad.
