AntiSpyCheck Rogue Program

AntiSpycheck is a new rogue spyware program. It's installed by the zlob trojan, giving fake alerts that try to get you to purchase it. The zlob trojan disguises itself as a video codec that is supposedly needed to view a video. It really installs spyware to make fake alerts and installs AntiSpyCheck to trick you into buying it.

Here are some lines from Hijackthis that you may find if you are infected:
