    as well as the obvious entries in a hjt log


    run hijackthis and fix this entry also if it exists
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MSZTCE] C:\WINDOWS\System32\MSZTCE.EXE

    you can try to find the C:\WINDOWS\System32\MSZTCE.EXE file and delete it but you won't ( or at least no-one I know has found it yet), but if you search in c:\windows you WILL find a random numbered or series of random numbered .exe files something like 70000045.exe please find and copy their names & locations, they need to be fixed a bit later. they have to be deleted in safe mode as something running, normally the MSZTCE.EXE file locks them to prevent removal easily.

    in 9x or ME systems the MSZTCE.EXE entry will be
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MSZTCE] C:\WINDOWS\System\MSZTCE.EXE
    or O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MSZTCE] C:\WINDOWS\MSZTCE.EXE
