    Hello all. I downloaded a bunch of stuff today so I'm not sure what did it but usually I don't get hit with this kind of stuff :( Oh well. Even trusted sources can fail.

    Anyway this is the message that pops up when you have AV installed (I didn't at the time DOH!) so this isn't my machine, it was someone elses who tested the file for me.

    I am operating Windows XP SP3 updated as far as Windows Updates will go.

    It seems this Virtumonde is one of those viruses that generate random names for the DLLs so they are hard to spot.

    Symptoms When I open folders it takes longer to load the contents of them than usual and dragging windows leaves trails behind that take a bit to clear. The computer is now just running slow in general. I use to be able to do things while my computer is running intensive processes since I'm on quad core w/ 4 gigs of ram, but now I can't.

    Here is my HiJack this log file. I can obviously see its still there and I'm not sure how to get rid of this.

    I'm willing to do whatever it takes to get this fixed because this is a new install of XP and I just got done installing and updating all my programs!

    Let me know if theres more information you need!

    EDIT: I did some research and found this http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2003-120914-4108-99 It appears a VERY recent version of Vundo is out there causing havoc. This may be why Vundofix hasn't found anything for me yet.

    EDIT2: After a lot more scanning VundoFix found 2 infected files. There is one more that shows up in HijackThis ( O2 - BHO: (no name) - {8D2860D3-B472-434F-8CF6-79613BBF2A54} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\juwefisi.dll) which VundoFix seems to have missed. Will remove the 2 it found for now.

    EDIT3: Removed those files. Still slow and its obviously not gone. New HiJackThis log http://pastebin.com/m34f696d7

    Hey, good news! I found a tutorial that helped me get rid of it! It really is tricky though.

    http://bbayles.googlepages.com/antivundo.html

    NOTE: The symptoms listed on that page do NOT limit the fixing ability of this tutorial. That wasn't my problem at all.

    Heres a full list of what I did to fix it:

    Ran SuperAntiSpyware(works good)
    Ran Malware Bytes (works good)
    Ran VundoFix
    and Followed this tutorial which was the main fix http://bbayles.googlepages.com/antivundo.html
