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.
