OKay - I thought I removed virtumonde back in December - all was good - but I'm back infected.

Symptoms include not being able to run a full virus scan to completion without a crash - awarealert se 2007 has detected the files and registry entries. HOwever. adwarealert can not perform a deep scan without crashing - I can not even reinstall mcafee without a scan and Mcafee crashes too.

I've tried deleting the registry files - but they come back so there is a hidden component somewhere.

I'm stuck - I can identify some of the files but, not all of the op. processes. Remove Vundo and Vundofix crash my computer too. When I thought I was smooth sailing in December - both of those apps worked just fine.

Help is appreciated.

Hello is ths an XP machine?
Have you tried to run the already installed apps, eg VundoFix from safe mode?
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

yes, I have xp - I did try to run all virus apps from safe mode - however, I can not get to my regular desktop and applications from safemode. I also have a profile issue that ms hive fixed once but subsequently is not working.

I can not run any anti-virus apps from safemode.
