    Default How do I get rid of a rogue antispyware called Win Antispyware?

    It suddenly appeared one day as my home page in IE 7. A warning about needing to install Win Antispyware and Anti Spyware Shield and has installed a toolbar called Security toolbar 7.1 with the url as has quarantined "Win32.Trojan.Downloader.agent.bkd" and "Win32.Trojan.Zlob.CBN" under spyware and "not-virus:Hoax.HTML.Secureinvites.a" under viruses each time I open up the internet browser. I have ran a full scan from ZA and nothing comes up. I get random pop-ups also warnign me to install the software too.I would show you the screen shot if I could load it here.What do I do to get rid of this.

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

    NOTE: the steps below works only if you are on the latest version of ZA (7.0.470.000).
    Try to perform a full Antivirus/Antispyware scan but in SAFE MODE.

    1. Disable system restore;
    3. Manual run ZASS (ZA firewall will be OFF but Antivirus/Antispyware will be functional)
    3. Run a full ZA AV/AS scan
    4. Reboot in Normal Mode
    5. Ensable System restore

    How to start in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING:

    How to disable windows SYSTEM RESTORE:

    If the above fails you may want to try Ewido online scan at:
