firstly, i scanned a downloaded file w/ the latest Zone Alarm and it came up saying it was clean. after launching the file, i get all these trojans popping up in ZA and all these security/internet access warnings coming up one after another. i keep selecting 'apply' to take action on this virus (trojan.win32.patched.aa) in windows/system32/services.exe and it says 'delete after reboot' so i apply again and again, i reboot and then the same routine continues. this is a nightmare! i cant even use my PC now and all my apps are fried and keep giving me errors, on top of constant invisible ads playing audio in the background. how can i remove this virus? ZA is not able to. if it would have caught it when i scanned the file before launching, none of this would have happened.
any help would be appreciated.
