I have virtumonde, Spy Sweeper found it, quarentined it, but it kept coming back. I have Nod32 which stopped threats of Online Security Guide and some other program, I downloaded and ran AVG and if found trojans and viruses. I have deleted everything in my Temp folder except for some things that could not be deleted. But again, I believe its still in there somewhere because Vundofix and HijackThis do not open. What should I do? System restore to a week ago? All of this started 2 days ago.

The program does not run, and reports that a file named "msvbvm60.dll" is missing. | Please download the following MS run-time installer which will install the missing file and
allow you to use Hijack This without any problems:

Super Antispyware has had success in removing Virtumonde.
Install Super Antispyware free. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

If when trying to run HijackThis, you receive an 'Unexpected error' that says "A required .DLL file, msvbvm60.dll, was not found", please download the file from here. Then extract (unzip) the file to your C:\Windows\system32 folder, overwriting any existing copy, and restart your computer.

If that does not help, then do this:
Go to Start > Run and type or copy/paste: regsvr32 msvbvm60.dll
press Ok and restart your computer.

If you still have problems, then you can download the full package from the link buddy215 provided and then try running VundoFix, followed by SuperAntispyware in safe mode.
