    Today I suddenly started seeing a load of errors from Zone Alarm - can't remember the exact nature of the message but basically one of the modules was continually failing to initialise.

    I reinstalled Zone Alarm from disk , downloaded all of the latest updates and set everything to the highest level.

    However I now keep getting a Windows Firewall Security Center Alert (High Level) for Win32.Zafi.B

    Would be very grateful if someone can advise me how to get rid of this

    Thanks in advance

    Hello SirClive,
    I went to malwarebyte.org, downloaded thier software (free) ran it, it found two problems relating to the win32.zafi.b virus, and removed them. When I restarted my laptop I have not had any pop ups all day.

    Hi,

    Glad to hear Malwarebytes (MBAM) removed the malware for you. I keep MBAM updated - its free - and run it regularly as a second opinion on demand scanner. Also, if you are using Windows System Restore points - malware "hides" in System restore points, so once the computer is clean, it's a good idea to set a new restore point and wipe out all the old restore points so you will not reinfect the computer.

    Regards,
