If I run vundo fix to get rid of trojan vundo virus, will it delete files and photos and those sorts of files off my computer?
Any advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated as I need to run progarm ASAP!

No, Vundofix only removes known .dll files that Vundo uses

I would also recommend reading the post found here and following the steps there after using Vundofix

Super Antispyware will remove some Vundo infections. After using Vundofix and SAS you should post a Hijack This log.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Post a Hijack This log in the Hijack This Forum by following the directions in the link below. DO NOT post the log in this forum.

Follow the the instructions for using Vundofix in BC's self-help tutorial "How To Remove Vundo/Winfixer Infection".

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.

Also 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.
