    I got a Vundo Virus on my XP desktop (currently using my Vista Laptop) and it took some doing, but MalwareBytes seems to have cleaned it up.
    I have notice two seemingly residual problems (at least I never had these problems before)

    1. Live Sync doesn't sync the files.
    I have been syncing the XP desktop to the Vista laptop and never had an issue, in fact it was one of the MS programs that I thought actually worked really well.
    Now, everything says that it's working but nothing is syncing.
    I checked the Port Status, Initiate Connection shows OK on all 4 ports, but Accept Connection has Blocked on all 4.
    When I stop and restart Live Sync, I can see the Vista laptop goes thru all of the files, but does nothing after.
    If I do the same on the XP, it seems to look and find no files to sync.
    I have tried uninstalling and re-loading on the XP, no help.

    2. My Windows 6.5 phone would not sync with ActiveSync either.
    I found a troubleshooting post that said to uncheck in USB->PC "Enable advanced network functionality", so I did and the phone did sync, but before it did a warning came up on the phone saying that this would completely delete all contact, calender and mail data and they would be re-loaded with the sync (which IT did - took forever).

    Did this Trojan screw with my syncing ability in a general way?
