    Default system warnings and alerts

    I have system alerts and warnings popping up every 30 seconds or so.
    Telling me i have to download software because i have Trojans and bad stuff on my PC.
    So i am not very good at all this, but i did check with my ZA logs and what was quarantined etc.
    And sure enough, it had it and i deleted that.
    But i am still getting warnings from system monitor and when i click the balloon to go away it comes back, and sometimes it bring up a window for me to download.
    Which i promptly cancel and a web site comes up anyway that tells me to buy their anti-whatever.
    It is very annoying.
    i know my ZA is working good.
    Where do i turn off these warnings and alerts.
    is there a trick.
    i went to security center to try to turn off but it wouldn't let me.
    Please help.

    Hi!you are probably infected by multiple malware... You don't specify which version of ZASS you are using.If you are not on ZASS 7.0.337.000 please update your ZASS version. Older version had a very weak antivirus/antispyware. You can download the latest version here:http://www.zonelabs.com/zasuitedownload/ Try to perform a full Antivirus/Antispyware scan but in SAFE MODE.1. Disable system restore;2. Reboot in SAFE MODE3. Manual run ZASS (ZA firewall will be OFF but Antivirus/Antispyware will be functional)3. Run a full ZA AV/AS scan4. Reboot in Normal Mode5. Ensable System restoreHow to start in SAFE MODE: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/d..._failsafe.mspxHow to disable windows SYSTEM RESTORE:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310405If the above fails you may want to try Ewido online scan at: http://www.ewido.net/en/onlinescan/and also download, update and scan with superantispyware FREE:http://www.superantispyware.com/download.htmlif ALL the above fails please post your Hijackthis log here:http://www.castlecops.com/f67-Hijack...ans_Oh_My.htmlPlease read mandatory steps before posting:http://www.castlecops.com/t102301-Hi...e_Posting.htmlFax
