I'm running on windows XP professional SP2.
Recently i donwloaded a file off the internet and when i tried to run it my windows explorer quit.
I tried restarting the computer but the windows explorer and the task wouldn't appear again.
Added to this i noticed that my computer runs slower now.
i tried to run spybot which detected two infections. One is "virtumonde" and the other is "virtumonde.dll"
i also tried running spyware doctor but it came out clean.
then i would restart the comp and spybot would run before windows startup which would again detect "virtumonde".
after fixing the problems with spybot my computer would run fine after restart until i connect to the internet and my windows explorer would quit again and i'd lose the taskbar.
i've tried the process again and again but the infection keeps on coming back.
Can anyone help me with this?
