    Default Backdoor.win32.sdbot.xd found!

    Zone Alarm antivirus tells me that I have the "Backdoor.win32.sdbot.xd" virus on my computer, but isn't able to treat it. The suggestion is to do search the web for "removal Backdoor.win32.sdbot.xd."

    I have tried same, but can't find anything specific that doesn't seem to involve some pretty advanced experience with disinfecting computer viruses.

    Is there any step by step procedure for accomplishing this, that a non-expert can follow?

    Where did this bug come from in the first place?

    Why didn't the Zone Alarm Suite catch it? (I must say I am disappointed; after all this is why I bought the program.)

    Can anyone help me with any of this?


    Operating System:Windows 2000 Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
    Software Version:7.0

    And where did it find it?Are you on ZA Suite or AV? You mentioned about ZASS not detecting it but ZA AV detecting it. Was the ZA Suiteversion 6.5 or 2007? Version 7 has a new AV engine by kaspersky. Try to run a full AV/AS scan of your systemin SAFE MODE:,Fax
