I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place, but i had a question about spybot search and destroy. I recently became infected with the virtumunde trojan, in which my other virus scans could detect it and couldnt remove it. I ran spybot and it detected 2 trojans containing virtumunde and removied the tojans and it contained the check mark next to it saying it was done. My question is now since i did this, is it off my computer or what? Should i continue the guide to posting a hijack this thread and do that? Thanks in advance guys, i appreciate it.

Rerun Spybot and see if they still show. You might want to try a few different scanners to double check until one of the experts reply

(Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully)
