I discovered win32/virtInf-b and virtumundo a few days ago by running spysweeper and spybot. I cleaned out what I could but when I restart it comes back. There are some files that won't delete, it says "cannot delet: access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use." Then it has a registry that is not in my registry or at least I can't find it. I have ran everything I possibly can to get rid of these two things and they just come back when I restart, so I really need some help.

How is your computer running now? Any more signs of infection?

Usually with vundo, there are other files affected.

It's doing better Thank You!, I was going crazy.
This site is very helpful. I just mostly have some tracking cookies to deal with.
I ran spybot and ran Panda, that's what said I had 3 tracking things but it deleted them
and spybot said I was clean.

If there are no more problems or signs of infection, you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
