ZA identified two viruses the first one was mssearchnet.exe. I deleted that after booting up in safe mode and deleting the file from the DOS prompt.

The second virus was identified as c:\windows\system32\wbsys2.dll. I could not find this file in the DOS mode in System32. This virus was identified as being in memory and Zone Alarm could not delete it or take any other action against it. IN the meantime, my laptop is very very slow. I have used ZA Security Suite to scan for viruses, spy ware. I also used ADware personal. Yet the computer is still very very slow.

You are probably still infected. Please go to the Malware section of this forum and follow the instructions at the top. Especially the Click Here link. That will give you several steps that will help you clean up most of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the cleanup process you are still having difficulty, and you may not be, then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

Please be patient as the "Malware Forum" is a very busy place and a two or three day wait is not unusual.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the Malware Section, please return to this thread. Please do not post a HiJackThis log in this thread unless asked to do so and then only as an attachment. To attach log, when requested, either change the .log extension to .txt, or put the log into a compressed (zipped) folder.

Please post back if your problem has been solved.
