Hi, I think I could possibly have a "Trojan horse-Zylob". I could be completely wrong though. I tried to download an adobe photoshop crack and now I keep getting Windows antivirus pop ups. I can not access my Control Panel. I also keep getting "Warning! Potential Spyware Infection! your computer is making unauthorized copies of your system and Internet files. Run full scan now to prevent any unathorised access to your files! Click here to download spyware remover." odd how they spell unauthorized completely wrong the second time. I did a full system restore and it's still here, my computer is going very slow I can't get on MSN or on some websites because it takes too long to load. I'm not sure what I should download or do. Please help, thanks :) :) :)

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.
