I wonder if someone can help please.

I hvae ZA suite and have just run a scan which has come up with HTML.phishbank.VU
virus. ZA says it has been unable to repair. I have tried getting info via the info screen in ZA but ZA say they have no info on this virus yet it found it. How can I remove it. Ive tried Tend Mico scan, Eiwdo, Avast, Spybot, AdAware, nothing found, however there must be something for ZASS to have found the above virus which it has been unable to repair.

Anyone any ideas please.

Many thanks

Hi Excal

Thank you so much.

Ive tried with ZASS ( which found the jolly thing)Spybot, Adaware, CCleaner, Eiwdo, Avast, CleanUp!. I also have Spyblaster installed. Nothing seems to be finding anything except ZASS. I also have TDS3 but havent run it as Im not sure, although it was loaded via Do you suspect a malware (Spyware, Virus, Trojan) infection? Please Start Here. I am not sure how up to date it was. If you think I should run AVG & TDS3 I will.

Heres the Hijack log ( Hope it makes sense)

Hi Grandpa,

Your computer is locked up tighter than Fort Knox!....lol

Phishbank is a generic name for attacks where the user is trying to be tricked to enter confidential information via email forms or fake web pages.

Typically these are attempts to get banking or credit card information.

I would imagine that your antivirus/Spyware is doing its job and recognized it. Your log shows no sign of anything suspcious. It maybe an email you got or a web site that you went to.

I use this program called Spoofstick it will show you if you are not on the site it tells you are on. Might want to try it out.

Great job, it appears your computer is clean :tazz:

Ensure you rehide your “hidden files and folders” back to the way they were.

Now that your system is Malware Free, it is important to reset your system Restore. Click Here to learn how to.

Might I suggest the following Free Spyware programs, if you don't already have them, for added security, you can download them at the following links. These programs work great for detection:

Ad-aware SE
Spybot S&D
Microsoft Anti-Spyware

If you are unhappy with your current antivirus and want to replace it or if you dont already have one, I suggest one of these free programs:
*Note - do not use more than one anti-virus program as it will more than likely cause conflict.


The following free programs are great for prevention:

SpywareBlaster 3.4

A Firewall is a must! Here are 3 good free versions:
(do not have more than one firewall running on your system)


There are other options other than Internet Explorer for a browser, which some say have better security. Two of them are:


If you decide to keep Internet Explorer, This site is a great source for tightening up security on It's settings.

Make sure that you keep your Operating System and IE updated with the latest Critical Security Updates from Microsoft...they usually come out once a month, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Be sure and give the Temp folders a cleaning out now and then as well, Make sure after you clean your Temp files to empty out your Recycle bin as well.
For ease use the following program:

Run "Cleanup" and when it has finished, Reboot

To help prevent future spyware installations/infections, please read the Anti-Spyware Tutorial and use the tools provided. Also read How I got Infected

Hi Excal,

Many thanks for your help.

Im not sure what you mean by " rehide your hidden files folder "
Im pretty sure the virus was something to do with an email as there was ref to POP3.

Again many thanks. Iguess I dont have to do anything about this virus.

Kind regards and thank you for your help
