I have seen several other people posting about this, Spybot Search and Destroy and thus never finishing a scan.  I have taken the initiative to run FRST on my system and have attached the relevant files. Any help you can give would be appreciated.

Quoted from a PM

Dear nasdaq,

Just so you know your original fix given to me http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/607899/spybot-stalling-on-zlobzipcodec/ worked for a while, but the problem began again. I tried making a new admin account and found everything was fine --- until I signed into chrome and it synced all my app/extension data. I think whatever this virus is is linked to chrome.

What does synchronize settings and so on?
Google Chrome does. It saves all of my passwords, settings, extensions and so on to their cloud server.

Before you start save your Passwords and Bookmarks as you must remove the current synchronization with Chrome.

This tool can be used to save your passwords
I have not tested it so use it at your own risk.

Export / Import your Bookmarks
Chrome will export your bookmarks as a HTML file.

Delete your synced account.

Delete the Chrome folder.
You will normally find it in the folder in bold.
C:\Users\User name (yours)\AppData\Local\Google > and deleted the Chrome folder.

Close Chrome.

Restart the browser.

Import your passwords and bookmarks

These are the Chrome extensions I suggest you reinstall if you use them.

To find the Extensions Google the designated string, for example, this one will guide you to install Adblock Plus


Do the others one by one.


Hope that helps.
