This computer runs Windows 2000 Professional and was infected with a trjan downloader by the nam of zlob. Malicous removal tool from MSN only removed one of three variants of this malware, and states that the other two are win32/zlob.AMV and win32/zlob.BAH. here is the notepad file that was created when I downloaded the hjt.exe.

Due to lack of response this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
