Hello... the name's CJ. I got a Lenovo 3000 C200. I'm running Windows XP SP3 and I keep everything updated almost to a point to be called OCD... that included my antivirus which WAS mcafee free special edition from AOL, and Windows Defender, but now it's Windows LiveOneCare with Windows Defender. I keep getting alerts from Windows OneLiveCare about an infection of Malware called Vundo.gen!R in my Win32 folder. I am actually really good at removing viruses and such infections... but it seems more than once this problem has evaded my best tactics. Is there anything I can do? Can you help me? I can use HijackThis, Combofix, or w/e... I have quite the arsenal that includes:

AIMFix
FixVundo (Norton version)
Security Task Manager
Windows Defender
Malicious Software Removal Tool
Windows Update Fix
VundoFix by Attribute something...

Please get back to me ASAP? Thanks guys!

Please note the message text in blue at the top of this forum.

You should not be using Combofix unless instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.

  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • 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.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Instructions with screenshots if needed.

Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Okay... I currently have it scanning. And I do know not to use it... I haven't used it. I just said that I merely have the program and CAN use it when instructed to do so by someone such as an expert. Like I said, I'm not really new to this computer world, I actually work in an IT department myself fixing computers with such problems like this, and have taught myself quite a bit over the years. I just haven't gotten too in-depth yet like I want to. Anyways, I do appreciate your help... thank you very much. I'll post the results as you say when it's finished.

Okay... it has finished... and found some stuff in my Registry Keys. It said it removed all of them successfully. But here's the log file anyways so I may be reassured from some expert opinions. :D

Your MBAM log shows "No action taken". This usually occurs if you forget to click "Remove Selected" and instead just click "Save Logfile". Please review these instructions (scroll down) and rescan. After performing a new scan, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.

I know it says no action taken... but I did remove after I saved the log file and they said they were all removed. I rescanned and this is what it came up with which I also removed.
