Virtumonde problem i need help with please!

  gazmix 19:00 09 Sep 2007

I noticed my AVG threat detector detected something after i downloaded the 'Shareaza' file share programme.
I started to recieve a file in stages & i got the threat detection!
I clicked on 'heal' & apparently it healed!
I got it again!
I cancelled all file shares & uninstalled Shareaza & ran Spybot!

It found the usual, plus 5 entries of Virtumonde!
I googled virtumonde & this guy said that hehad this & couldn't remove it. He could only move 4 of 6 entries. Also that it is in the memory ?? sorry but i aint got a clue realy!!
Apparently virtumonde hides itself & causes browser hijack & popups, this i'm getting!!

It said that the only way of getting rid, was with windows onecare scan, but i tried this & it said it can't be done on my pc as i have to upgrade!!
Could it be that i'm using Mozilla?

What can i do? Apparently a hijackthis log one't find anything & neither will other anti virus scans it mentioned!

I'll have a look, cheers.
I have both firefox & IE, i thought the onecare wouldn't work with ff, so i tryed with IE, it said my security settings were disabling me from doing the online check!, i have AVG & ZA, i was wondering if my ZA firewall may not be set up correct!
How should it be set up?

I read Fingees link befoe, this is why i wrote what i did in my 1st post.

I have run Rogue remover which seemed ok & posted a hijackthis log on

Spybot found 5 entries of virtumonde & according to Spybot, it also deleted them. But on the link in Fingees post, it says that Spybot can't always delete them.

Now when i turn on my pc & evertyhing on my desktop loads up & before i go online, i get a ZA programme
alert saying ' tmp24.tmp.exe ' is trying to access the internet!!
What could this be, i've googled it & i don't understand.
Any help appreciated

I had this problem a while back.

I contacted Spybot and I think that it was Karen there that solved it for me.

Hi did you use Vundofix and then Virtumundobegone if the Vundofix did not work,

As VoG said earlier?

I ran VundoFix, it found 4 files, i followed the instructions, pc rebooted.

It said that if Vundofix couldn't remove any files, it would run on reboot.
It hasn't automaticaly started on reboot, so does this mean that it's got rid of Virtumonde from my system?
Would it have automaticaly run again after reboot if it couldn't remove files the 1st time??

This is how to use it,

1/Double-click VundoFix.exe to run it.

2/ Click the Scan for Vundo button.

3/ Once it's done scanning, click the Remove Vundo button.

4/ You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files, click YES.

5/ Once you click yes, your desktop will go blank as it starts removing Vundo.

6/ When completed, it will prompt that it will reboot your computer, click OK.

7/ Vundo should now be gone.

ou should be clean know!

I have run Vundofix & it showed 4 entries, it rebooted & didn't reappear after reboot, so i guess it removed all files!

I ran Virtumondebegone in Safe Mode as instructed & this is the logfile:-

As you can see, it's says all is ok!!
But how can i tell for definate!

When i boot my pc & before i logon to internet, i get the ZA programme alert saying:-
tmp24.tmp.exe is trying to access the internet!
This has just started since i had issues with the Virtumonde!
Could this be part of Virtumonde or something else?
