Hi. 

 

I downloaded Norton Anti Virus as my computer was running oddly, and my internet searches were getting hijacked.  I ran a scan, removed threats and carried on.

 

I then kept getting a pop up saying System Infected : Trojan.Zlob Attack blocked.

 

So I went on to purchase Malwarebytes Pro, ran a scan, and removed all detected threats.

 

However, I am still getting multiple pop up in the bottom right corner from Norton and Malwarebytes whenever I boot up by computer advising me System Infected : Trojan.Zlob Attack blocked.

 

Could my laptop still been infected by this Trojan, and why can Malware bytes and Norton not detected and remove it?

 

Please help :)

 

Thanks

Hello,
    
 
They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll try to help your with your issue.
 
     
    
Before we start please read and note the following:

  • We're primarily oriented on malware removal here, so you must know that some issues just cannot be solved and you must be prepared for this. Some tools we use here will remove your browser search history, so backup your important links and all the files whose loss is unacceptable.
  • Limit your internet access to posting here, some infections just wait to steal typed-in passwords.
  • Please be patient. I know it is frustrating when your PC isn't working properly, but malware removal takes time. Keep in mind that private life gets in the way too. Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.
  • Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
  • Do not paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work easier. There is a More reply options button, that gives you Upload Files option below which you can use to attach your reports. Always attach reports from all tools.
  • Always execute my instructions in given order. If for some reason you cannot completely follow one instruction, inform me about that.
  • Do not ask for help for your business PC. Companies are making revenue via computers, so it is good thing to pay someone to repair it.
  • If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.

:excl: I can't foresee everything, so if anything not covered in my instructions happens, please stop and inform me!
:excl: There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!

This is nothing serious. Let's take a deeper look:
 
 
Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.
 
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them.
Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.

  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

Yes, there are sings of infection. In you next reply, can you attach all MalwareBytes scan report since you installed it?

 

Fix below should clean the remnants of infection.
 
 
FRST.gif Fix with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool
 

icon_exclaim.gif This fix was created for this user for use on that particular machine. icon_exclaim.gif
icon_exclaim.gif Running it on another one may cause damage and render the system unstable. icon_exclaim.gif

 
Download attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop:
 
Both files, FRST and fixlist.txt have to be in the same location or the fix will not work!

  • Right-click on FRST.gif icon and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
    (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File).
  • Press the Fix button just once and wait.
  • If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally. After that let the tool complete its run.
  • When finished FRST will generate a log on the Desktop, called Fixlog.txt.

Please upload it to your reply.

fixlist.txt

I have just rebooted, and opened up my internet browser.

 

This would have usually caused multiple pop ups from Norton and Malware bytes - but nothing as yet so a good sign :)

 

Just out of curiosity - What is the point in paying for things such as Norton & malware bytes if they are unable to detect and remove stuff like this?

That is something you need to understand. This is a very new infection and it takes time to create a proper definitions for it that will remove it 100%. Sometimes some very new malware infects thousands of computer before malware analysts and researches grab a copy for testing in order to create a fix for it.
