    My computer was infected with with xp antivirus. I ran my own antivirus program (ESET NOD 32) and found nothing.I then turned off my modem and restarted my computer in safe mode and ran another scan and found nothing, all the while I kept getting warnings telling me I had all these viruses and it wanted me to get this xp antivirus. I kept closing all the pop ups but it wouldn't stop. I couldn't do anything no internet, couldn't access my security centre. I decided to do a system restore which stopped all the pop ups and problems. I then shut down the computer as it was late and I was tired. When I woke up I turned the computer on, everything started fine. I then rang eset to see if they could help. The guy I spoke to told me I probably had a new variant of the virtumonde aka Vundo Trojan and emailed me some steps to remove the problem. The steps he gave me were:

    Get the latest version of eset and run a scan. Done found nothing
    run eset rogue AV Cleaner. Done found nothing
    Get Malwarebytes and do full scan. Done found 1 infection Rogue. MulipleAV
    Get superantispyware. Done found 45 cookies
    Get CCleaner .Done
    Get Combofix .Done but haven't had it analysed. Do I need to have this analysed? I then had to update and run full scans of eset and Malwarebytes Both were clear. My computer seems to be running fine at the moment. Do you think I need to do anything else. The operating system is Windows XP that is kept updated.

    Seems I was wrong in thinking my computer was fine. I tried to play some music and the computer shut down. Blue screen. Restarted ok but I am not going to use anything that I don't have to until I get this sorted. I have attached Combofix log.

    Everything seems to be fine with my computer now. I think the guy from eset sent me the link to this site to get help with the Combofix. I hope I haven't done something I shouldn't have.
