My daughter began complaining about her PC slowing down so I made my monthly pilgrimage upstairs to clean up the crudware she invariably picks up. Strangely enough, Trend, Spybot, MS Defender & Ad-aware all found nothing. So I dug a bit deeper using Rootkit Revealer from Sysinternals. Again, nothing. I then looked at the ZA logs and in the Programs logs, found that C:\Program Files\Zone Labs\Zone Alarm\zlclient.exe was connecting to these DNS's: quizilla.com, twx.doubleclick.net & go.hotmail.aate. I looked a bit further and found another couple of instances were zlclient.exe (no path) had attempted to connect to wiki.tcl.tk-those were blocked.
Anyone have any ideas? I wanted to run this by experts before I uninstall ZA and do a clean install in case anyone wanted a file. My own machine shows no instances were the zlclient has tried to connect to anything but Zone Labs for update information.
Thanks in advance,
