Posted 04 March 2008 - 12:47 PM

I have been able to clean (or so I believe) the virtumonde/vundo/ms metajuan problem. I have ran the following scanners and all report clean:

- Symantec Corporate
- Spybot S&D
- Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
- Ad-Aware SE
- VundoFix
- VirtumundoBeGone

I have also used "Free Windos Registry Cleaner" which is not perfect, but helps a bit... and finaly HJT.

After rebooting the pc, the following message pops up:

"Error loading C:\WINDOWS\System32\ubuyjehq.dll. The specified module could not be found"

I found that this and a lot of other similar .dlls (8characters.dll) size about 1218kb rename themselves and come back right in with a new random name (8characters.dll) after being deleted manually. It seems that all .dlls are gone now but this final registry entry behaves the same way. When I delete it manually, it comes back in.

here is the HJT log:

I just got it Fixed!

I guess, (and am almost sure), some entries could not be removed from the registry thanks to lavasoft's "Ad-Watch" which was active all the time.

- I decided to uninstall ad-aware and ad-watch
- then ran the registry cleaner again
- was able to remove unwanted entries. Finally!

I think Im 10% HAPPIER today!

Good job mercado,

This topic is now closed.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
