Posted 02 April 2008 - 05:01 PM

I recently got a zlob infection. It would not disable the task manager, but instead kill it when I clicked on the process or network tab. Also it would not let me view the application /system error logs. My CPU usage was at 100%, when before this it would never go beyond 20% or so. I also can not install any new programs (er: system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation.). I tried to remove it and am now have the task manager back and that, but the CPU is still spiking at 100% and my ability to install has not returned. Is it truly gone or just hiding?

Hi there,

Welcome to WTT. My name is RatHat, and I will help you get through the process of cleaning the malware from your computer.


OK firstly, I need you to print out each post I make so that you can refer to it while we fix your computer. This is because there will be times when you are unable to be online to read my instructions, and I will want you to do everything very carefully. I also need you to follow my instructions in the order that they are given. If however, you cannot carry out one of them, please continue on with the next and let me know what you were unsuccessful with.

Next, I would like to make sure that you can view hidden files and folders;
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading SELECT Show hidden files and folders.
  • UNCHECK the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
  • UNCHECK the Hide extensions for known file types option.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.
