I am running a Dell Dimension 2350 that is about 4 years old. Microsoft XP, SP 2.
I just ran my first Spybot scan in a month and while scanning there were a huge number of virtumonde files. The extensions I recall were virtumonde.sci, virtumonde.sdn, and virtumonde.dll. It took probably 15 minutes to get through them all.
When the scan was completed there was a listed problem entitled "Right Media". I fixed it, but another scan showed the same thing. Before I discovered Bleepingcomputer.com I downloaded and ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware software and it did not find anything.
I have not been experiencing any strange popups or other system problems, other than the fact that my system has been very sluggish for a couple of months (virtual memory tops out quickly). Since I noticed it after upgrading to Office 2007, I thought that was the problem. I have 1G memory, 2G's in the mail I am planning to install in a couple of days.
I would really appreciate help on what I need to do here.
By the way, I discovered this because I just purchased a big external HD and was doing a system check before I copied my entire "My Computer" to the new HD. Should I hold off on backing up my system?
