New here so please forgive.
I want to thank you ..I spent 2 days trying to get rid of Vundo.B & your link to VirtumundoBe Gone was the only thing that worked. Scared me at first as I am a newbe to pc & when my screen went blue I went Blue. But it worked & thank you .

Now I may have the same virus or something else in my pictures. Every one I send them to now gets a warning message they may have a virus in them .But my Pc shows no virus anywhere after running 5 programs . Did my pictures get infected & how can I tell & what do I do now? My Pc running clean. No more problems except the pictures that are kept in my documents.

It seems unlikely that .jpegs would get a virus. How are you sending these files to the people that report they are getting a virus warning message?

I can send emails that are not pictures & they are fine ( no virus) & I can send individual pictures with no problem Its when I send a full folder full of pictures this is the error messages .

Windows Live Hotmail has blocked some attachments in this mail because they appear unsafe.

This message on my other PC private email (.incredimail )says
This Type of Attachment may contain a virus when run.

When I sent them to myself on my own PC( incredimail) no message comes up.

Are you sure on this one?? I don't think I want to do that. It says Deleting or editing these files can make your PC inoperable

try not to open up your C drive and start deleting

ntldr NTDETECT.COM boot.ini or anything like that and just stay out of the windows folder, especially the system32 one

and you'll be OK!

I for one believe in educating the public not keeping them in ignorant bliss in a day and time when you can click on one bad file
go to the wrong website whatever and hose your computer.

Just look in the picture folder for a hidden file that's not a jpeg
