    Thanks guys, renaming connection to z-connect does work.

  15. Lalthangpuia says:

    yes it does work, just delete the z-connect connection and rename your connection as z-connect

  16. rajesh kumar says:

    Colleagues, the ultimate solution to this problem is to do a thorough clean up on your machine. i mean a format. however, as Z connect kicks off your connection you can also kick it off by connecting through it. Here is how you connect through it
    1. Go to your web browser, say Internet Explorer
    2. Select Tools and scroll down to Internet Options
    3.On the Internet Options dialog box, select the Connections tab
    4.Under Dial Up And Virtual Network Private Settings, you will see a list of different connections including z-connect.
    5. Double click on Z-connect, put in your username and password, plus the domain if you have the details from your ISP
    6.Click on Properties and look for the phone number, put in the access number that you were given by your ISP then OK.
    7.Close everything and go to Network connections
    8.Double click on Z connect and enter the Phone dial up number then dial to the internet
    At this point, you will be able to connect to the internet and browse normally. however, this will not wipe away the virus.

  25. Noah Takaona says:

    I also used to have the same problem and have used the solution below. But what I need a removal tool that removes the virus permanently

    My Solution
    Remove files used by the z-connect (executables with funny names) and the connection from internet options.

    Run Local Security Settings (secpol.msc),

    Enable the Disallow option

    Connect to the net using yo usual connection and browse.

    Remember to do the reverse for you to run other programs

    Z-CONNECT is too bad, but thank God i send it away. very simple idea, all what you need is to remove your moder board battery for some hours and contiue browsing, after some hours return the battery back, and say bye bye to Z-CONNECT. BAD VIRUS IS BEEN SENT TO MY SYSTEM BY MY FRIENDS…………………………..

  30. shrinivas says:

    IN YOUR DRIVE C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME(i mean your name)\

    THERE WILL BE AN EXE FILE LIKE y5o8h28d4.exe

    THIS FILE IS RESPONSIBLE TO CREATING z CONNECT AND DIALING WRONG NUMBER(000) .
    SO
    1-> MAKE OFF YOUR CONNECTION
    2-> DELETE THIS FILE y5o8h28d4.exe
    3-> MAKE A NEW FOLDER THERE AND RENAME IT AS
    y5o8h28d4.exe
    5-> NOW AGAIN CONNECT YOUR DIALUP NETWORK

    I THINK YOUR PROBLEM WILL BE SOLVED
    THANKS

    It seems to evolve from Z Connect to X connect. Ensure that your antivirus is updated guyz and run a scan. Files you should be aware of is j/une.exe and f/uck.exe
    good luck

  49. recepcan says:

    bad virus, I tried to delete it, but it appears in some second after I delete it. I noticed some weird files appearing in C/Documents and Settings/My User like “ddaqaeu6” and when I delete it, another weird named file appears. And if I dont delete, there can be 5-6 files or more there. Are these files the reason of z-connect virus? Or plz help me at getting rid of this. I can dial up my net without problem via this z connect. But sometimes in 15-20 mins, I can get disconnected. Nowadays my computer is really being attacked. I am so upset :( and need your helps
