When I startup windows my Zone Alarm client always pops up and thats been happening for a while and recently My Documents folder showed up too. Anyone experience this before? I've run Spybot, Ad Aware, CWShredder, Cleanup and AVG as well as having Spyware protection. Please help. :tazz: :)

I suggest you START HERE and go through the manual fixes on your own and if you are still having problems, then post a hijackthis log in the malware forum

No after a while Zonealarm always popped up at Startup and the only time my AVG shows up is when its updating. Isnt there some command saying what folders are open at startup?

My documents pop-up thats normal! My old computer used to do that I assume it is option but I haven't figured that out yet! So it is normal I had it and had no viruses or malware! About ZoneAlarm I personally haven't used it but I know it is good!
