Hello Folks,

The Trojan.Downloader.zlob.abt Trojan.Fake.alert.eb... Are both on my sys. but according to Bit Defender, "they're causing no harm to my sys."
I presume that means they are quaranteed.
I've run SpySweeper and a couple others and have been unable to turn either one up. Nor can I locate them in Google.
My questions are, how can I get them off my sys.?
Where can I find the definitions of same?

You guys have been very helpful to me in the past and if I ever learn anything, maybe I can return the favors!

hmmm, if you use your anti-spyware applications in safe mode they still can't clean it out? try it, sometimes you have to use multiple applications to kill it, so try adaware, spysweeper, spybot, all the popular ones

if you're not really noticing any issues tho, and if one of the apps. says it's safe, it might just be something with a bad signature, giving a false positive, but try safe mode with all those apps. and make sure they're on the latest definitions / updates to be safe
