I'm only referring to Virtumonde because thats the name of the virus that the pop-up warns is on my computer.

On boot-up I get a white desktop with a prominent pop-up box that says:

Warning! Win32/Adaware.Virtumonde
Detected on your computer
Warning! Win32/PrivacyRemover.M64
Detected on your comupter

However, I used a "virtumonde fixer" I found online and it did not find that virus.
The malware deleted the system restore setpoints so I could not use that.

I have run both Ad-Aware (all items deleted) and Spybot (same, three corrections to the registry). But when I fire it up I get the same thing. I also got a blue screen that windows had to shut down due to a problem ("bogus driver") and I had to restart twice due to that. I ran the windows setup disk to fix any problems with Windows (XP-Home).

I ran HijackThis and have attached is the log.
I pay for results.

Hello ecm3131,

However, I used a "virtumonde fixer" I found online and it did not find that virus.

What "virtumonde fixer" did you use?

Before we start, you need to realize that you are missing one important program on that computer: An antivirus.

This is somewhat suicidal in today's digital world.

You need to install an antivirus program as soon as you can and run a complete scan of the computer.

I recommend you download the free

Avast or
AntiVir or
AVG antivirus

Products from all three vendors received the Virus Bulletin's VB100% award and certification for virus detection from ICSA Labs.

Never install more than one antivirus scanner or firewall on your system! Several together can give you problems and decrease the reliability of it seriously!

We need to create an OTViewIt Report.
  • Please download OTViewIt by OldTimer.
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Select "60 days" in the File Age box.
  • Copy and paste hijackthisbackups in the Custom Scans box.
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here. Do not attach them :
  • OTViewIt.txt <-- Will be opened
  • Extra.txt <-- Will be minimized
