    Default Consistently Seeing Win32 trojan detected


    I installed ZA Internet Security Suite on my mother's laptop after uninstalling McAfee and all its subsequent programs. ZA continues to detect a trojan in the driver files of win32 every few times I begin using the internet. It treats the virus and then restarts, only to have this problem remain. Is this a defect in ZA's ability to treat certain viruses or do I need re-install it again? System is win7 for home.

    The More information you post more likely other users here will be able to help and suggest potential remedial actions.

    Right click the ZA icon near the clock --> About --> Copy to Clipboard --> Paste in a reply here. Mind to remove the license key (if applicable).

    Exact version of OS used? XP SP3? Windows 7 SP? Windows 8? 8.1?

    English version?

    Any security Programs (Version #) running the desktop PC? Laptop? Netbook?

    Since when have you are experiencing the problem? Did ZA ever worked correctly?

    ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:
    ZoneAlarm license key: ********************* NEVER POST your License Key in a Public Forum
    Vsmon version:
    Driver version:
    Antivirus engine version:
    Antivirus signature DAT file version: 1152023424
    AntiSpam version:

    win 7 sp1 on a laptop, en version

    When I downloaded ZA Internet Security Suite, it detected infection and recommended adv. disinfection which I started. I finally shut the computer down after 2.5 hours of being on the adv. disinfection screen, only to have the win32. host Trojan detected repeatedly. I just tried deleting that file totally from quarantine and not enabling auto-treatment as recommended for treating a possible false positive. In short, didn't work right from the start though browsing aside from restarting seems better

    Any other recommendations?
