Hi - I got the above on my Windows Vista Home Prermium system - have read previous articles here and tried SuperAnti Spyware - which finds the three infections and asks for a reboot when it has dealt with them - except an immediate second scan finds them still there. Spybot is also picking up its alter ego Virtmonde. The vundo had a .BY tag -then two different ones.
Is there a tried and tested way of getting rid of this as it seems to have let in a trojan called Zlob (Slob?)now
My PC has been plagued by this virus/trojan for the past few days and I have tried all sorts to try and fix it. Same experience as Andanotherthing so far. Virtumondobegone has not worked; I have tried using various methods in Safe as well as Normal mode, plus disconnecting from the net. I ran Superantispyware this afternoon and it picked up a number of Vundo files and others, which I then elected to be put into quarantine. However, I was stll getting unwanted websites, especially one called "Horny Babes"! Then Avast (my resident virus scanner which has been excellent in the past, started issuing one warning after another. As quickly as I deleted an entry another would pop up. Eventually, Avast warned that the vruses were "embedded in memory" and recommended at boot scan. I opted for this and the PC was automatically closed dow. Avast commenced a scan during the boot phase and this is still continuing. So far it has identified about 8 Trojan files and gave me options for handling them. I chose to fdelete all - which it apparently did - and it is now continuing to scan the rest of my system. Meantime I am keeping my fingers crossed and using my laptop. Will let you know the final outcome tomorrow.
Severn Bore, if Vundofix cant remove Vundo, which is common these days, it's time to move up to more powerful tools, which you need to be instructed with. There are plenty forums with trained experts to choose from. I personally work on these ones. click here click here click here
