I knew it was fake when it said that "CNN" journalists did the***.
First, they couldn't find a real story to save their lives and second,
they're on Osama's side!

Actually I thought it was a Photoshop H Attempt at Humor.

I now have  the following;

c/windows/system32/zonelockup.exe

It's a persistent little ***. My anti-virus was unable to quarantine it
and I was unable to remove it. Haven't detected a problem in the operation
of the system yet, but  I have emailed Microsoft for a fix...

If I get one I'll let you know..

Norton should handle it - it's in their June 30 AV update, and is
described as a variant of Backdoor.Hacarmy.D

Here's their description of the key parts of the payload.

o Causes system instability: Allows an attacker to terminate processes.
o Releases confidential info: Delivers system information, such as
   operating system information, system uptime, current user name, IP
   address, and host name, to the hacker.
o Compromises security settings: Allows unauthorized access to an
    infected computer.

So did it at least have a phoney picture of Bin Laden?  What did it do when
you unzipped it?

Google... it's your friend.   This is a trojan, aka "backdoor.hacarmy".

Boot into "Safe Mode", then delete the file.  Sounds too simple to be
true, but the OP said it worked.

Sorry, Nada, zip, nothing. Then I find out it may be a virus on board. I ran
my AVG's scan and it didn't pick it up, I had just updated the day before.
So I did another update and it found it. I also have the AVG Shield on
newsgroups but I guess it's that new...

I thank all who have pointed me to the way to fix it will be doing so soon.
