I had a spydawn infection download to my computer. I did not know about this site until I did a query on google but I had already bought and downloaded the spyhunter 2.8 software to try to rid my computer of this nasty thing. I was able to get rid of alot of spyware files and cookies that were hidden but the system alert is still on my bottom taskbar and I cannot get rid of it. Is there something I am missing? I actually paid for the spyhunter software ($29.99) and hope that this program is not a sham but I thought that it would get rid of this system alert too. Need some help to get rid of this little nuisance.

Thanks in advance

Welcome to BC :thumbsup:

Unfortunately, spyhunter will not completly remove Trojan Zlob.


Please download HJT setup.exe Here
Let it Place Hijackthis in C:\Program Files\Hijackthis
Open Hijackthis.exe
Click on Do a System Scan and Save log file
Don't Fix any Items!!!
Just copy and paste the contents of the log file to your reply.


===========================

Open Hijackthis, Click Open the Misc tools section Then click the Open Uninstall Manager... button.
The Add/Remove Programs Manager panel should appear.
In this panel click the Save list button.
Save the uninstall_list.txt file to your desktop and copy and paste the contents back in your next reply.
