    Firstly let me say that at first appearance this post is in the wrong forum, however it does relate to Spyware/Adware so I thought it is kind of a security type matter.

    One of the users on the home network keeps getting asked by ZoneAlarm for permission to allow a program, refered to as eZstub Module, access to the internet, As I have ZA Pro It is password protected so this permission cannot be granted by the user in question. When i do a search for a file or folder containing the text 'eZstub' it is found in the users NTUSER.DAT file, is there any way of cleaning this file of the eZstub reference as i dont really want to delete it as he will then lose all his desktop and registry settings.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Nelix,

    You probably already already come across this,

    This page tells you how to remove ezula toptext an ie plugin which uses ezstub.exe http://www.whirlywiryweb.com/removeezula.htm

    This page detects if ezula toptext is installed on your system http://i4net.tv/ezula.php

    My only other thoughts would be to run a spyware removal tool over your system if you haven't already.
