I searched around and tried to diagnose my problem and thought I had the Vundo trojan. I downloaded the instructions and executible files and ran them. They didn't find anything at all. Still have issue on the computer. Winlogon dominating the machine. Constantly max'ed out to 100%. I was able to run HijackTHis and have attached the log file. HijackThis did also produce a long list of processes to investigate, but I'm following advice from your site and requesting assistance before I go and make things any worse.
Double-click on DSS.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
When it has finished, dss will open two Notepads main.txt and extra.txt -- please copy (CTRL+A and then CTRL+C) and paste (CTRL+V) the contents of main.txt and extra.txt in your next reply.
Extra Note: When running DSS, some firewalls may warn that sigcheck.exe is trying to access the internet - please ensure that you allow sigcheck.exe permission to do so. Also, it may happen that your Antivirus flags DSS as suspicious. Please allow the Deckard's System Scanner to run and don't let your Antivirus delete it. (In this case, it may be better to temporary disable your Antivirus)
