Hello.

I am running a dell inspiron 6400 laptop computer with windows xp sp3 with windows internet explorer 7 and opera 9.62.

I had numerous pop ups advertising for antivirus software start appearing when I used internet explorer or opera so i ran spybot search and destroy 1.6.0 and fixed all found problems. I then ran malwarebytes' antimalware 1.31 and fixed all found problems.

Whenever i reboot my computer and run antimalware, it consistently finds 2 registry values infected with trojan.vundo.h

I am unable to rid my computer of these infections as they keep reappearing everytime I turn on my computer.

I would appreciate any help that the experts at bleepingcomputer can offer.

Thank you in advance.

If you’re clean, you should create a new Restore Point to prevent possible re-infection from an old one.

Go Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click System Restore. Choose the radio button marked Create a Restore Point on the first screen then click Next. Give the Restore Point a name and then click Create. Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point. Go Start > Run and type: "Cleanmgr" (without the quotes). Click Ok > More Options tab > Clean Up in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

Also, go Start > Control Panel and double-click Add or Remove Programs. Post back and report any Java entries that you have.

All those Java entries are out of date. You should remove them and download the latest from here:
