Late last night my son's XP SP3 laptop started crashing with blue screens
Examination of the AVG 7.5 Virus Vault in Safe Mode revealed an absolute mess
with variants of Trojan Horse.Generic.12 being the most common. At the time
I can't say I noticed Virtumonde or not at that time.

While is Safe Mode with Networking browsing to any "security" site was hijacked,
so I transferred necessary programs from a working pc on a usb key.

These are the programs I have programs run to (1) stop the crashing and (2) stop the browser hijacking.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
ESET online scan

Subsequent AVG and ESET scan "appear" to show things are back to normal.

I ran both Spybot 1.52 then 1.6 and Virtumonde continues to show up making me nervous that
though there is no crashing or browser hijacking.

In my haste to fix this machine I have already run Combofix "before" asking for help.

After doing so I reran SpyBot 1.6 and it didn't find anything.

I'm at the point now where I need your advice on how to proceed.

Hi Virtual Canada,

Since you've already run Combofix, it would help if you'd post your Combofix log without running it again. If you rerun it, the new log will overwrite the old one. Then get a copy of HijackThis according to the instructions in This Topic

Post both of these in the HijackThis and Malware Forum. It may also be necessary to run a scan that will pick up recently installed files in your win32 folder, but someone in malware removal will tell you if they need further scans.

Since you have a posting in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, I'm going to close this Topic.

At this point, the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a PM.
