Hello, my first post =)

Well, I got infected yesterday with the Trojan.Zlob thing, that downloaded the Issearch.exe thingie into my computer.... (geez... I only dropped the software firewall for 30 secs, and so much for the hardware firewall).

Anyway.. I ran Ad-Aware, Norton... deleted some files manually while in safe mode.. and all seems to be working now..... will run other tools suggested in this site just to be extra sure.

But, when I open Internet Explorer... I still get the obnoxious page www.issecurity.net... or something.. which of course is a fake thing.

Any idea how can I remove that page from autoloading everytime I open IE?

Thanks!

Please Click here!, and follow the recommendations in the guide.

If you're still having trouble, We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool, Hijack This. Follow the instructions in step five of this guide, and reply here with your log.

Most of what Hijack This lists lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

Thanks, problem solved.

Tried 2 tools from that topic.

-Spybot S&D (Which actually found more stuff than Ad-aware)
-The Fix for SmitFraud

And the pesky page is gone.... muahaha =)
