A friend at work has a system that is infected with Trojan.VUNDO I have ran the removal tool but the infection keeps coming back.

After I ran the tool last night and then ran Hijack This it did not show up. We turned the computer off left it all night and day then this afternoon when we started it back up VUNDO was there.

How do I get rid of it permanently?

Hey there,

Which tool did you use to try and remove it?

If it wasn't
http://vundofix.atribune.org/
give it a try.

If that tool does not work you can give VirtumondoBegone a try in the following link,

http://secured2k.home.comcast.net/tools/VirtumundoBeGone.exe


Along with those 2 tools you should download Superantispyware from the following link:
http://www.superantispyware.com/

Run that in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine what ever it finds.


You should also give BitDefender online a try in Normal mode, this must be run in Internet Explorer
http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html



You should also clean out your temp files using a tool such as ATF Cleaner( which should be run in safemode)

Let me know if any of these solutions worked, and I'll see what i can help you with next.

Take care
Josh

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
