On my Probook I encounterd the same Vista Antispyware 2023 message and eventually found a zv.exe file. It hijacked my computer completely and even activated/run in safe mode.

Does anyone have a removal tool for this. I am NOT very IT savy … So all of this root things etc … I am lost.

Correction on my LAST POSTING … It is a VZ.EXE program running. NOT ZV.EXE as stated earlier.

A new variation, using jci.exe as infected executable that is installed in the registry. Followed instructions in this thread for manual removal.
