Hello ihateadware52792, let's stsrt with this BC tutorial
How To Remove Vundo/Winfixer Infection
After running VundoFix, a text file named vundofix.txt will have automatically been saved to the root of the system drive, usually at C:\vundofix.txt. Please copy & paste the contents of that text file into your next reply. If vundofix stalls or fails to run, continue with the rest of the steps and try running it again afterwards.

NEXT: download AutoRuns
and save it to your Desktop.
1.Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if your not sure how to do this.)
2.Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
3.Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
4.When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.
5.Scroll through the list and look for an entry related to strpmon.exe.
6.If found, right-click on the entry and choose delete.
7.Exit the program when done.


NEXT: download OTMoveItby OldTimer and save to your Desktop.

>Double-click on OTMoveIt.exe to launch the program.
>Copy the file(s)/folder(s) paths listed below - highlight everything in red and press CTRL+C or right-click and choose Copy.

C:\Program Files\StorageProtector
C:\Program Files\Common Files\StorageProtector
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\StorageProtector


>Then in OTMoveIt, right-click in the open text box labeled "Paste List of Files/Folders to be Moved" and choose Paste.
>Click the red MoveIt! button.
>The list will be processed and the results for each line will be displayed in the right-hand pane.
>Highlight everything in the Results window, press CTRL+C or right-click, choose Copy, right-click again and Paste it in your next reply.
>Click Exit when done.
>A log of the results is automatically created and saved to C:\_OTMoveIt\MovedFiles \mmddyyyy_hhmmss.log <- the date/time the tool was run.
Please copy/paste the contents of that log in your next reply.
-- Note: If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately you may be asked to reboot your computer in order to finish the move process.
If asked to reboot, choose Yes
.

So far so good. Still want to see the SuperA log. How is the PC running now? Also your java is out of date,so you need to do this....
Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malicious sites can use to exploit and infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Version 6 and save it to your desktop.
  • Scroll down to where it says "Java Runtime Environment (JRE)6 Update 4...allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Select your Plattform: "Windows".
  • Select your Language: "English".
  • Read the License Agreement, and then check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • Click Continue and the page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation and save the file to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove Programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check (highlight) any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u4-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.

I can't get that new Java, when i go to download it, i get an error saying it wont allow me to, and that i need to contact customer service, so i'm waiting on an email reply from them..

as i said in my last post, i did the vundo fix, but unfortunately it didn't work at all, but it did apparently find some files...

im going to work with the ATF and Super today, ill post again soon.

by the way, my computer is running fine, but i get a lot of error messages and the occasional promotional pop up. I also have 1,000 .TMP files in My Documents, and my C drive picture is now a red X, rather than a disk drive picture..

thanks for your time by the way BoopMe , much appreciated .


PS. did i forget to mention ive got vista home premium?

also my C drive still has a red X on it, rather than the C drive little icon thing, how do i fix that? (for example if i goto my computer, local disk C is a red X, it works though.

I've deleted all those temp files that were in my documents, and the icons on my desktop too that were from that adware. Things are looking great right now!

You don't need to run anything if you're happy.Perhaps you can post in the Vista forum about the x.

its just that my C drive has a red X on it,

That is symptomatic of a newer type of vundo infection which will create thousands of pos*.tmp files in the root of the system volume and may put a Red X on your drive icon(s).

You should continue as follows:

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application. (If using Windows Vista, be sure to "Run As Administrator")
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Acan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • The next screen will ask you to select the drives to scan. Leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".

    Posted Image
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process and, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.
