Recently contracted Vundo Trojan. MaCafee keeps saying "the file C:\Windows\system32\mllmk.dll is infected by the Vundo trojan and cannot be cleaned." I have scanned with MaCafee, I have tried FixVundo (which says it can't find it), I have tried Process Explorer (it can't find the file when I try to suspend it). I've tried Safe Mode. Nothing's working. Hope you can help. Thanks, SteveH07.

Superantispyware is known to be able to clean some vundo variants, please try Superantispyware

Download, save the file, make sure that you do all updates, restart the computer into safe mode, run a completesystem scan, and let SAS remove everything that it finds. Please post your results back here.

Thanks, OF

Some variants of vundo may not be detected by vundofix so the "add more files" option is another way of ridding this malware. However, these files need to be identified and posting a hijackthis log will enable an expert to advise you which files to add if you continue to have problems after scanning with Superantispyware.

If thats the case, then please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. If you can't perform a step, then skip and continue with the next. In step #9 there are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log. (This is a self-extracting version which will automatically install HJT in the proper location.)

Please note that some vundo variants will hide certain entries in a hijackthis log to prevent detection so if you post a log, please rename HijackThis before using it. Open the HijackThis Folder, find the HijackThis.exe file, right click on it and select "rename". Type Analyze.exe and hit "Enter". Double-click on Analyze.exe (which is still HijackThis) to launch the tool, perform a scan and create your log.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Steve, thank you for the kind words in the PM, however SAS is probably only touching the surface of the issue, and has just cleaned enough to make the computer appear to operate correctly. I would recommend that you follow Quietman7's directions and post the Hijack this log.
