I've been dealing with some type of infection for a few weeks now. When I run my McAfee scan it runs smoothly until it hits about 35000 files that it has scanned and then every file after that it detects and names a detection. I've tried to let it run completely as it says it is either "quarantining" or "deleting" the files, but it would take days to let it run through every single file and complete the scan. The items that it is detecting are: Downloader-BEA (Trojan), Vundo (Trojan), Vundo.dr (Trojan), Generic.dx, and Generic Downloader.k. It started out with just the "Vundo" items which I thought I had gotten rid of. I had read another post on here an followed the directions by downloading and running the "VundoFix" program. It detected some infected files but apparently did not remove everything. Now there are even more files infected and even more types of infections that I don't recognize.
It doesn't seem to be affecting my computer too much. The only problem I'm having is with my disk drive. I can't seem to download new drivers (i.e. my printer/scanner and my external CD/DVD burner) and when I try to save anything to disk, it doesn't recognize that there is a empty disk in the drive. I don't know if this is related to the infection or not. I have considered redoing my whole computer, but I have many pictures and files that I need to save to CD before I can reconstruct my whole system.
Can anyone help me or advise me what I need to do at this point? If I need to reformat my whole computer, I'll do it, but I really need to save these files first. Any suggestions or help that anyone may be able to offer would be greatly appreciated!
