Malware/Adware or Spyware Computer Infected
well yesterday when I got home, switched my PC on as usual, then in XP tried to open my opera browser,, nothing happens, tried open my Firefox, nothing happens, so opened IExplorer everything looked fine, but when I did a search in Yahoo, the results were normal but all the hotlinks were pointing to completely wrong destinations, it happened I found a browser Object Helper installed on IE, DZTOOL with a nasty dll blingen.dll in system32, so moments later discovered that I could not access many security websites, could not update my ZoneAlarm, could not update my Adaware, so installed Spyboot with no joy, then Hijackthis, it found the entry for that dztool, remove it, and deleted the ofending files, restarted problem solved? nope, my antivirus had updated well the night before so I ran a full scan (6 hours!!!) nothing found, only usual cookies.
so I decided to start in windows Vista (got dual boot), I used Avast and McAfee Internet Security.... nothing found.....
and I ran out of time lastnight so the problem is still there.... cannot get rid of that DZTOOL and blingen.dll has anyone experienced this infection before??
uhmmm I can see a Windows Reinstallation coming soon :confused:
