Hi guys, SOS

I have Windows XP Pro on my machine andmsn installed.
I received a file from friend user (mattgoltz - who also posted this subject here) saying "you wont believe this, this picture looks like you.." and after I opened the image disaperaed, but appears every hour, freezes my machine and sends emails to all my msn address list with the same message.
I installed a trial version of Norton, it did not detect anything on the systems scan, but then it brings me windows saying it has detected malware.
Adware cannot detect anything.

Also, after installing super antispyware it brings me ever 5 min the following message:

We have detected and blocked a harmfull proram, with description: Trojan winfixer process in WIN 32

I am trying to clean up my system, but with no success a I am getting crazy as I am doing an online MBA and have problems of losing class.

Thanks to anybody who can help me!
Peter

Blocking of access is typical of a Vundo infection.
  • Please download VundoFix onto onto your desktop.
  • Run VundoFix and select Scan for Vundo.
  • After the scan, follow the prompts to remove the infection.
  • You will then be prompted to shutdown. Do so and restart.
Please have the results in your next post.
