Vundo...what a pain in the arse

how annoying is the vundo virus/trojan.
none of the "removals" worked then i had to go through the boring excercise of turning off system restore.....loading up winternals ERD Commander....(((i did this becuase the vundo was making the explorer.exe file end every 3 seconds, literally. gets anoyin) then i booted that up had to manually go to the infected system32 files and delete them...go to the infected registry values and keys and delete them...wat a long nite. :@:@

Question is how you got infected in the first place?

i found out it was something to do with java apparently......but the weird thing was behaving fine at 9pm last nite but when i turned it on at 6pm tonite it started to go belly-up lol

Funny you can't put a finger on where this vundo virus was picked up. A pain I'm sure. Have you no idea where or which site you got infected?
Seems now that a variant of vundo will try to hide from a hijackthis log; click here

aint got a clue lol....dont have HJT so it definately is not in the log lol. but the thing that was so anoyin was the explorer.exe going literally every 2-3 seconds...

Recently had a Trojan attack including a Vundo variant click here
which was detected and apparently cured quite simply by SuperAntiSpyware.

I still haven't worked out where they came from and how they got in, although it is possible that they were attached to an e-mail.

SAS couldnt delete mine as they kept coming back...could of been through system restore, but i decided to delete them the ERD Commander route anyway lol

Could be - I use Acronis TI for back-up, so system restore is switched off.
