I believe my computer is infected by a rather sophisticated trojan.

i was running pc-cilling and it was turned off by this virus or trojan. It essentialy stopped all the processes on my computer for running for about two minutes and was able to load a number of things on to it before I could pull the plug and stop the dialers from doing more damage.

I was able to upload bit defender and discovered and erased some trojans butI still am having problems with a slow computer and items that were put into my directory are still there. I can tell that there are weird things tha were uploaded becasue i kno the exact time that this infection occurred.

Bit Defender detected the folowing trojans

Trojan Vundo.EGG
Trojan Retapu.D
Trojan Downloader.Small.BUY

I can no longer open IE and Firefox has security problems and will not allow me to access secure sites. Outlook is very slow and does not like to load e-mails that have graphics among other problems.

I don't want to do anything else unless I have some knowledgeable help.

Any help that I could be given would be greatly appreciated.

what other protection programs do you have and when did you last manage to run them and update them ?

i am running XP and I only have bit defender running now. I turned off pc-cillin. It has had trouble in the past with missing viruses.

I have avg as a backup but I had just the pc-cillin as my virus protection and firewall.

i suspect that my java script was out of date and could have been part of the problem. I updated the java program when it asked me to today.

  • 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. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.

Adware.Vundo Variant/Rel

My computer is still having problems. Mainly two things. I am not able to get Bit Defender to re-start or actively protect my computer . I click to re-initiate and the program hangs up. Also, IE and Firefox have problems. IE will not open. It will not connect to the internet. Firefox will connect but it gives a SSL protocol error message and a security error message when the program is opened. Media player do not work either. It is great. haha.

Thanks for your help.

I've split your DSS log away and moved it to the HJT forum here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/145550/trojan-vundoegg-trojan-retapud-genericzenoe5f12f0c-adwareisearchd-trojan-downloadersmall/

You should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck
The only easy day was yesterday.
