Hello, first post newbie here. I have VUNDO and cant fix it. I have done lots of searching and try multiple things but cant get it to go away. I think the file "efedc.dll" is the problem and I cant get rid of it either. This problem started a couple days ago when some how the security toolbar 7.1 showed up. I can get it to go away, but it keeps coming back as well. Lots of pop-ups. Any help will be much appreciated. Brent

Did you follow the the instructions for using Vundofix in BC's self-help tutorial: "How To Remove Vundo/Winfixer Infection"? If not, do so.

Some variants of vundo may not be detected by VundoFix so the "Add More Files" option is another way of ridding this malware. 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. If the infection remains after using VundoFix, then you should post a hijackthis log.
