HI all. Two days ago my computer started having pop-ups galore, I couldn't do searches in Google, and the balloon in the bottom right task bar stating "Your computer might be at risk- automatic updates are turned off- your virus protection status is unknown).
I ran the following with their results:
Norton's anti-virus...all clean.
Ad-Aware 2007...multiple infections (didn't wite them down)
SpyBot...5 infections of virtumonde.prx; 2 infections ofvirtumonde
Superanti-spyware...1 infection ofadware.upmedia/searchtool; 1 infection of trojan.media-code/vs; 3 infections of adware.vundo variant/rel
CCleaner...several infections (didn't write the down).
I ran the clean function of all of these then disconnected my PC from the internet and reran all the above. Everything seems to be working fine now. No pop-ups and I'm able to search within Google. The only thing I still have is the balloon (red shield with an x in the center). My anti-virus is running and I have automatic updates turned on. Also, when I run a Configsys, I have the following items that I can't seem to find any info on:
Startup Item- ugvystpx
Command- rundll32.exe "C:\windows\system32\ugvystpx.dll",b
Startup Item- rxeqgvkv
Command- rundll32.exe "C:\windows\system32\rxeqgvkv.dll",s
I unchecked marked them but have not restarted. They may be associated with some of the recent programs I loaded above but I want to be sure.
I am running Windows XP SP2 Home.
Hopefully this is enough info to get you started.
