Hello all, first post here. Hopefully I can be helped, as I am about ready to reformat this laptop.

I believe I have the virtumonde trojan as well as a few other trojans.

Here are my computer's symptoms (in order they began):

1) Windows Automatic Updates shut itself off
2) I got popup windows leading to url.adtrgt.com
3) The trojan datamined my search history and brought up random search pages with what I had previously entered
4) Spyware Guard 2008 installed (and keeps installing) itself on my computer under the directory C:\Program Files\Spyware Guard 2008

The steps I have taken to get rid of this involve updating and scanning with Avast, Spybot S&D, and Ad-Aware. I performed all scans in Safe Mode as well, but the problem remains. All programs found some problems, however some of the problems Ad-Aware found I was not able to fix. Those were, I believe, Host Redirectories (9 of them). Hijack this didn't seem to have any abnormalities, however I can post that log if you like.

Thank you in advance for the assistance!

Edit: I went poking around at other virtumonde posts, and per most of those, I downloaded, installed, and am scanning with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

Edit2: Here is the log file generated by MBAM. So far, it looks like this was able to remove things. Is there another step I can take to be sure everything is off?

Rescan again with MBAM (Quick Scan) in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.

Then please download and scan with Dr.Web CureIt. Follow the instructions here for performing a scan in "safe mode".
-- Post the log in your next reply and let me know how your computer is running.

IMPORTANT NOTE: One or more of the identified infections (TDSS.***) was related to a nasty variant of the TDSSSERV rootkit component. Rootkits and backdoor Trojans are very dangerous because they use advanced techniques (backdoors) as a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms and steal sensitive information which they send back to the hacker. Many rootkits can hook into the Windows 32-bit kernel, and patch several APIs to hide new registry keys and files they install. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans and rootkits as part of an exploit to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge.

If your computer was used for online banking, has credit card information or other sensitive data on it, all passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for banking, email, eBay, paypal and online forums. You should consider them to be compromised. They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one. If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. If using a router, you need to reset it with a strong logon/password so the malware cannot gain control again. and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breach. Because your computer was compromised please read How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?

Although the rootkit was identified and removed, your PC has likely been compromised and there is no way to be sure the computer can ever be trusted again. It is dangerous and incorrect to assume that because this malware has been removed the computer is now secure. In some instances an infection may have caused so much damage to your system that it cannot be completely cleaned or repaired. The malware may leave so many remnants behind that security tools cannot find them. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action is to wipe the drive clean, reformat and reinstall the OS. Please read:

"When should I re-format? How should I reinstall?"
"Help: I Got Hacked. Now What Do I Do?"
"Where to draw the line? When to recommend a format and reinstall?"

Thank you very much for the information, quietman. Per your advice, I have changed any and all passwords as well as log-in names for many services I use. I will be scanning with the program you suggested momentarily. (Also, MBAM reported no infections upon rebooting into safe mode and scanning again.)

Ok. Don't forgot to update MBAM as they made some improvements in the new version released yesterday.
