    Hello,

    1. This is only the status bar displaying the products Spybot - Search & Destroy is currently searching for. It does not mean that all these items are on your PC.
    So...don't worry.

    2. A Trojan runs secretly in the background: You run a program and actually a completely different one is running in the background. Trojans control the computer like remote-controlled and make it possible for the programmer to access the infected PC. According to their coding trojans can do almost anything, up to formatting hard disks. They circulate information and slow down the computer.

    3. Please see above.

    Best regards

    Hi TR098,

    a little addition from me (perhaps you are interested in it):

    As far as I know, Zlob isn't any longer in development. But another kind of Malware rises on the "Malware horizon", which is perhaps a follower of Zlob.

    The "problem" about Virtumonde was/is that it changes every day.

    Happy Safe Surfing for you!
    Best regards - Beste Gre,

    Zlob victims filled malware removal forums back in 2006-8, so much so we pinned a sticky. Warning! Infection via bad CODEC installs. Zlob Trojan
