    Angry Windows Updates and Zone Alarm

    I have a hacker who is relentlessly trying to gain access to my system. For the past two days, I've gotten a slew of windows updates on my desktop computer, but not on my laptop. And upon configuration, my machine keeps shutting down and starting up again. I think that's odd. I just read about a spoofed Windows update called FLAME, which will penetrate the Windows Firewall. I've installed a Zone Alarm Firewall. What are the chances that FLAME will also penetrate Zone Alarm? Thanks for any response or help in advance

    There is no magic touch by flame as any other malware need to execute a component on the machine. If your machine if fully up to date (including all the third party software and drivers) and BOTH an antivirus/firewall is installed and fully up to date then you should be fine.

    Just follow all the steps here (including posting logs at bleeping computer website):

    to check if the machine is infected and to clean it.

    then see here below for avoiding future infections:
