Win32/zlob is a backdoor designed to give the attacker remote control over a compromised PC. It changes essential computer settings and modifies certain files. Zlob starts automatically on every Windows startup and hides its activities by injecting code into explorere.exe. It waits for remote connections and allows the attacker to download and install additional software, execute certain commands and manage the entire computer. Zlob can be very dangerous. Use antivirus and malware removal tools in order to get rid of this spyware.

Scan your PC with this to remove it. Its free.

William asks… Virus Removal?

Can anyone help me get rid of this virus? Other websites are selling virus protection/removal and I believe I can do this manually with a little help.
