My brother has got an infection called zlob.dnsChanger. As the regulars here know, I'm as computer savvy as a brick. Any advice with dealing with this little bastard is welcome.

Download and run spybot in safe mode is one idea

If you put the name you mention into Google it comes up with a fair number of entries. Be careful to stick with 'real' sites such as www.pctools.com where you can get a removal tool via a download.


Good luck

What your friend has is a Trojan. Often associated with "video codecs" or "plugins" associated with malware domains that are often (but not always) disguised as Adult websites.

I recommend the following, from Castle Cops, who are among the more reputable of the websites that deal with this sort of thing.

http://wiki.castlecops.com/Malware_Removal_and_Prevention:_Introduction

That procedure can often help a person partially or totally clean their computer without the assistance of an expert, if not, then they also have forums. They are very good at what they do, but their forums are swamped with requests for help, so it may take up to several days for someone to help:
