Hi i was wondering... i was recently infected with vundo... and still have it on my system... and its some difficult to kill virus thingy... which somehow is able to keep downloading other harmful stuff into my comp and make it worse...

so i was wondering if i could transfer some files which are important to my usb thumbdrive then on to my friend's computer for storage just in case...??

or is there a risk that it will corrupt my files and my thumbdrive and spread like a plague to my friend's computer?

Hi king123k,

The risk of infecting your friend's computer is great. You can remove some files for Vundo using different tools, but it always leaves some files behind that have to be removed manually. In order to have them removed manually, you will need someone who knows how to identify them.

Please go through all the instructions in This Topic. When you're finished, post those logs which you've accumulated into the HijackThis and Malware Removal Forum and tell them you've been trying to get this infection out of your computer for some time. Ask them if they can help you find the remaining files that keep causing it to start back up. They have to be removed manually.

You have a HJT log posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

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

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
